I'm still learning about the DS16C--but what I know, I really like. The cam combines high sensitivity with very low noise and no amp glow. With this cam, you can capture detail fast!
My goal here is not to spend hours producing an image, but to see how good an image can be with fast capture and minimal processing. Below is an image of M31 captured with the DS16C and f/4 Newt. It is a stack of 3x10-second integration with some level adjustment in Photoshop to darken the background--less than 5 minutes of total work.
