This is a pic made up of 40 three second images. Unguided. IRIS cannot read
the .fit files the camera generates so I used Registax. I also took 5 darks
and put them into registax as well. Taken with camera fitted to my 10 inch f5.6 newtonian

The camera has a lot of dark current so would not be suited to long
exposures unless it was cooled, but seems to suffice as a guide camera, I
also gave it a guiding test, in the off axis guider and 2.8x barlow taking an infra red image of the Tarantula with
my modded 350D, I will process that tomorrow. I could guide a long thin
comatic guidestar on the laptop with the qguider okay
