Hi Mike

Thanks for producing such an interesting, informative and well illustrated article, comparing and contrasting the DMK21 and DMK41 CCD cameras from The Imaging Source.

The details and overall image tone in the Theophilus mosaic are excellent. The complex, central peak structure and the terraced walls of the main crater are recorded in quite astonishing detail.

It was also very informative to see the differences in the raw Saturn image captures; the grain/noise of the DMK41 looked quite unusable yet you still managed to produce a pleasing portrait of Saturn.

I acquired a DMK31 (1024x768) at the Qld Astrofest and on the few times I have been able to point it at the Moon, I really appreciated its wider views compared to the DMK21.

Cheers

Dennis
