I discover CCD world of digital photography since 1999. First camera was Celestron/SBIG Pixcel 237. Later, my primary CCD camera become Starlight Xpress SXVF M8C 4Mp "one-shot" color CCD camera.

Since 2011. my favorite camera is SBIG ST8300C , "one-shot" 8,3Mp CCD camera. As autoguider I use QHY5C. I use also Canon DSLR EOS 500D.
