October 2010: New CCD arrived!!! QSI-583WSG

After waiting for a long time, saving money for this beauty, it finally came to me! A wonderful CCD. But this baby has showed all the defects of my current setup! Now I have a LONG task list to improve everything and get the most out of my new CCD.

But, for now, some initial tests. Let’s give them a look.
