Im using meade DSI PRO MONO cam. I was using it as guide cam for my 60mm f/9 using PHD guiding and it worked perfectly. I'm about to connect it to my saxon 80mm f/5.

As paula said it works great, they are dam fine cam for guiding and have great sensitivity unlike cheaper cmos stuff and color one shots. Got ours for guiding only because they have such a good rep for that purpose. Only mod i have to do yet is make up a filler for the filter slide as it looks like a rocket launcher hahaha

It works well but it is bit on heavy side compared to CMOS guiders.
