Ahh -ha! great minds think alike….

BUT I’m afraid not, well not at the moment. This is one of those UFO HD/driver problems. If the camera is set to it’s 2×2 binning (the performance is exceptional) however UFO HD throws up a media mismatch error. I can’t get it to work at the binned frame size at all. HandyAVI will run it fine at 2×2 but that’s not got such a good user interface.

The small pixel size certainly reduces the mag limit but even so, at full res, I can still see +8 stellar on the frames without the grating in the way. So it’s still pretty good and the point is to get as high a resolution as possible. A few more results will show whether it’s a viable instrument comparable to the venerable watec’s.
