New entry level camera - Brightstar Mammut Lyuba L429

astroshop.de introduced a new CCD camera - BS Astro Lyuba L429. It is equipped with ICX429 (as in DSI II or QHY6 Pro), 16-bit A/D, active cooling and ST-4 guide port. The sensor has very high sensitivity, but it is interlaced (thus not recommended for short exposures in planetary/lunary astrophotography). It costs 500 EUR which is much lower than very similar QHY6 Pro.
