I am awaiting the delivery of my new Meade 12" LX200 GPS. Eventualy (hopefully sooner than later), I wish to set it up with a CCD imager and tracking software. I have my eye set on the Meade Pictor 216 or 416 units. The later is three times the money of the 216. I understand the Kodak chip is considerably larger, but what is the real difference, and which one would you people get, and why?

Thanks for your help,
