OK. So SBIG's cost $3500 to $7000.
Is that really the way to go?
Are any of you CCD'ing out there?
What are you using?
I personally am using my Olympus C-2500L digital camera and not liking the results at all.
When I bought it they stated the shutter would open to 8 seconds. Guess What? 1 Sec.
I've tried real film and like that even less.
Mainly, the processing time.
Any and all help would be appreciated.
I'm really leaning toward the SBIG 2000
