With a custom adapter I think I can make a Baader UFC filter drawer and ASI1600 work for narrow band. And a second one with OSC

Maybe I could build up to that over time

That would be very nice. I guess a special set of narrowband filters that work at f/2 would be needed though.

I'm just trying to imagine multiple of issues with such setup- starting with continuously transferring short subs from 8 CMOS cameras to a computer and the number of subs for stacking

Baader have a set of wavelength shifted NB filters for very fast scopes.

The new 64 core Threadripper would be perfect. I have it all figured out, Suavi! Just don't tell my wife
