In this astrophotography video I try out the new ZWO ASI071 MC-COOL Camera. This is my first venture into astrophotgraphy using a CCD-style camera. The ASI071 is a one shot color (OSC) astronomy camera that uses a 16MP CMOS Sensor.
I try out Sequence Generator Pro (SGP) for the first time and begin learning how to use the new software required to run this camera.
My deep-sky imaging target for the night are the M81 and M82 galaxies in Ursa Major. These two galaxies fit within the same field of view my many wide-field astrophotography telescope configurations.

I am a planetary person: I note that most appear to be deep-sky people.
To each their own – right.
I’m looking for the best color ccd camera for planets and the moon. (a color camera)
I’m also looking for the best color video camera I can find – for the planets and the moon.
Would you please make a suggestion for me please – a recommendation for video and for photos – please see above 2 questions.
If you want to place the full moon in the field of view, you will need a big sensor camera.
