I used this for the first-time last night along with my new ZWO OAG. Having had an Altair Astro GPCAM previously, I wanted something with better sensitivity to pick off guide stars with my F5.8 TSQ100ED as the GPCAM sometimes struggled with just a separate F4 guide scope. When I fired up PHD for the first time I was amazed at the number of stars available in the FOV all with great SNR. As I was only really testing my setup I tried it in a few different locations and not once did I have to move the scope to find a suitable guide star. This is a fantastic, very sensitive, little guide camera and worth every penny in my view.
