Client’s testimonial, 2 cameras solution in a single telescope:

To: Alv

Title: The cameras are used as follows:

“….Mallincam DS10cTEC – Single exposure color, video assisted astronomy . Very useful for lunar, planetary, and other objects where you just want to, more or less, point and shoot, take a few short term exposures or a video for stacking frames. Very good software for quick setup and capture. Great for just browsing the skies.

QHY600L – Used with the color wheel. Has better resolution than the Mallincam. It’s a monochrome camera. Most of the uses will be either very long term exposures of nebula or B and V filters for calibrated variable star observations. The Mallincam can’t really be used for variable star observations because the sensor color correction can’t be calibrated to a know source.

Given my mood, I might just want to observe directly and the video assisted camera is great for that. If I want to do real work, the QHY is perfect. Normally, you would have to switch out the cameras (which even if local is a bit of a pain – since any camera movement would invalidate any flats that have been taken). With the Rotarion, I can just choose the camera that suits the purpose of the object without worrying about invalidating the flats. Granted, the absolute purist would say that I should take a new set of flats since the camera did move with regard to the telescope – but I think that is overkill. For me, it provides a range of flexibility that I normally wouldn’t have on a single scope.

Title: International Astronomy Shows UK 2022:

“….I seem to be using my Rotarion much more than I thought I would. I initially thought that it was more of a necessary convenience to be able to remotely switch between my color camera and my LRGB camera. What seems to be happening is that I use my color camera to set up and frame the exposure (using the video mode) and then switch to the LRGB camera to do the N.I.N.A. sequence of exposures. Similar to what you would do with multiple eyepieces. …
