Thanks for your comments Glen. I followed your EAA equipment thread with interest.

It offers great sensitivity and well depth, with low noise.
For true EAA use, as an adjunct to visual observation, cooling is simply not needed, as most of your frames or subs will be of very short duration (allowing Sharpcap to align and live stack each one).
The only reason you might want cooling is if you plan to stray into the world of very long sub imaging at some point. Just my opinion.
