Re: [guide-user] RE: Any more CCDs?

Steve Tonkin Dec 8, 2015

Hi Bill,

Not sure about the other ZWO cameras, but the ASI120MM and ASI120MC use different chips (MT9M034 and AR0130CS respectively) - not 100% certain, but I think its only the 178 and 185 that uses the same chip for mono & colour versions,.
Best &c,
Steve Tonkin

Hi Clay,

Not quite sure what happened there... I have fixed it by
re-uploading the file, except that it now contains data supplied
by Bernd Klemt for the VLT FORS, Sony DSC-RX100, Moravian G3-11000,
and Canon EOS 6D/G2-8300 cameras. (Switching to the VLT FORS ought
to cause some "area envy". Unsurprisingly, the Very Large Telescope
has a Very Large CCD.)
