Best mono planetary camera for C8

Post by bluesolarflare » Thu Sep 05, 2019 2:32 am

Hello,

I have a Celestron C8 SCT and I am looking into planetary imaging with a mono camera. I did some research and I am leaning towards the 290mm, but don’t know if this is the best camera based on pixel size. I am looking to use a 2x Barlow as well. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks.

A better tool on the same page is this one

https://astronomy.tools/calculators/ccd_suitability

It will allow you to add all details of your telescope and camera and even allow you to add the barlow. Then you can play with different seeing settings to see how suitable the camera is for the telescope (with and without barlow).
