new CCD camera??

I got the go ahead from the boss to purchase a CCD camera. I'm looking at the SBIG ST 402 from OPT for $1695. I like it because it has an internal filter wheel for LRGB work . Anybody hear of any reviews about it? I want to be sure about it before I purchase.See More

"Yes, PHD is a great tool that I used for a log time and I got amazing results. It takes a bit a practice, but I'm sure you'll figure the right settings for your system."

"Nicely done. You're definitely starting to pick up some nebula. The stars look like have a bit of trail, but still a really nice shot of one of my favorite objects."

"in reference to my question of October 8 the field flattner is actually a coma corrector-sorry for the mixup. I am planning to purchase an Astro Tech coma corrector for use on the 8 inch f4. Anybody have one? Regards, Larry Hazel"
