I recently got hold of a .0001 lux color imager. It's an inexpensive board-based security cam based on the excellent Sony Super HAD CCD II (the board is about an inch square!). I'm looking forward to using it for 'live" views of deep sky objects. Initial tests show incredible low-light performance. I'll take the lens off tomorrow and put it in a case. Next step--hang it on the scope. Should be interesting!
