Qhy8

Hi, I am looking for a new camera and have noticed the QHY8 seems to come up quite often, any thoughts on this would be great.

Here is Doug's(Hagar) images, I had the pleasure of meeting him at Snake Valley.
I think most of these are done with his FSQ Tak and QYH8

Depending on the scope you intend to use it with, I think the QHY8 would be superior to the QHY9 Colour in many cases...

As for the QHY8, Best OSC CCD in its price range by a long shot!
