Point Grey BlackFly

Just wondering whether anyone here is using the new PGR 20mp BlackFly camera? 20mp @ 18 frames a sec!

Another one worth keeping an eye on us the ASI183/QHY183 which use the same IMX183 sensor.

Really? Cool.

I have no experience with QHY or ZWO...is there a build quality difference between the two?

They’re much of a muchness. I personally believe that QHY has a marginally better build but I’ve found ZWO have historically had better drivers but they’re more the same than they are different. The major difference between them is the red of ZWO and black of QHY

I’m thinking about getting one for both planetary and galaxy imaging.
