heres info on the sensor the Q guider uses
http://download.micron.com/pdf/datas..._1300_mono.pdf Its 10 bit ADC is built into the chip. Even though it is 10 bit I love its anti blooming properties. No matter how saturated, it never blooms. 30 sec exposures pulls it up, any longer and theres too much dark current noise (might go better in winter) but still not bad for an uncooled camera
I always like to see what i can squeeze out of a camera. See

Its excellent value for a 1024 x 1280 format camera with around 50% qe
"Mr Tom's" drivers are indeed better, I tried the original QHY software on my other pc and seems a bit too "clunky"
I am very happy with the q guider.
