Camera purchase help

Post by wayne11 » Sun Feb 26, 2017 10:10 am

Morning all, i have already purchased the ASI290MC a while back for planetary and lunar and am very impressed with the quality of this camera, so much so i would like to upgrade my dslr to try my hand at dso with ccd/cmos, im assuming this is the next step? :?
As much as i would like the 1600mm cooled mono although im not even sure why, it is out of my price range and was wondering if anyone else can recommend another model and maybe the difference between them?, there seems so much to choose from and it gets a bit blinding, the one that springs out to me is the ASI174mm cooled mono just from some of the images that have been taken but the 178mm cooled mono is around £200 cheaper...whats the difference between those two?...and then there are the others :D
Thanks for the help in advance..

1600 mono is the best for DSO imaging
but maybe you used to color camera which is easier to use than mono one
so you can pick up 1600 color or 071 color
