A sealed gas purge'able CCD chamber looks like a good idea. I modded my STL to be able to purge the insides with inert gas.

Also, the QE of these new cameras seems staggering. Good also to see the frame buffer as the bigger these sensors get, the longer the download times.

Definitely some innovation going on at SBIG at the moment.

Yet something more to dream about owning or being able to use in some way shape or form. It will be interesting to see pricing when they eventually become available.

Thanks for the info to at the least dream over, Peter.

An incredible camera with all the bells and whistles. Not really for the real amateur in all his guises and with a family to raise.
How about a good cheap large frame chip that downloads quickly and doesnt take a PhD to learn how to drive? and that can autoguide responsively without making mounts reqire even higher levels of technology to work with them?
That could be real innovation.
