    Default Thinking of buying a CCD.



    So I think I might want to get a color CCD camera. I am looking at the Orion Parsec 10100C. I like it more than the Celestron Nightscape because of its better cooling. The only problem I have with the Orion is that unlike Celestron it does not come with free software and I don't want to have to spend $600 for Maxium DL after my 60 day trial expires. Does anyone know of any free / cheep software with will work with the Orion camera.
