The Meade DSI was introduced a few years back, and brought affordable, long exposure prime focus CCD imaging to the masses. Available in colour or monochrome, they had an immediate impact on the amateur astrophotography community.
Well, the DSI is being replaced with the DSI-II, and the old stock is being dumped at prices well below cost. In fact, the Monochrome with filters model, formerly about $600, is going for less than I happily paid for a used one, without filters, just a year ago.
So they are not the latest and greatest, if you want to get into CCD imaging on the cheap, or if you need a guide camera, don’t miss this opportunity to pick one up. Many major astro-retailers in Canada and the US are carrying them at this price, so you should be able to find one near you, or order one online.
And yes, I couldn’t resist, I bought another one.
