63280Re: [ccd-newastro] CCD SBIG STL-11000M vs Apogee Alta U16M
- Sep 1, 2008As far as workmanship, I would go with the SBIG. Some buddies of mine had
ordered several Apogees and all had to go back to be repaired. I know that
SBIG has been around for a long time and takes care of their customers. Just
my two cents.
