It has been on my plan to get an USB camera for the next step in astrophotography after trying afocal. However, in planning for the solar eclipse, I thought it would be better if I had a live image on the laptop screen then to have the family take turns looking through the eyepiece of the Lunt telescope.
I had seen a lot of postings about ZWO cameras so did some research into the models. I was thinking about maybe getting something in the $300 range but then decide to get the entry-level model for around $100 figured it would be fine for solar viewing and wouldn’t have to worry if I picked the wrong model.
I selected the ASI034MC.
