mmm it could but a mono version would be better...there isn't really a one size fits all.

I'd defo go mono initially Mark... colour is best for planets for obvious reasons (you get colour images :D) but with a mono you can at least do both (you HAVE TO have a mono for solar !).... ... then if, as I said, the fire is lit get a colour for the planets... I'm actually on the same journey myself  ;) :thumbup:

I'm just looking at possibly getting a replacement to my DMK41 and also want a colour camera for planets and my all-sky camera  ;) :thumbup:

FYI.
I use both QHY5 II and QHY5L- II colour and mono cameras for solar-lunar-planetary-guiding.

So you shouldn't have any trouble with any of Altairs cameras.
