      Thanks alot, Stu. I'm gonna try to go to SBIG and personally see and have
      them explain their full line to me. Some have enjoyed the Apogee as a better
      camera, but seems to have some performance problems. The SBIG seems to be
      getting overall favorable reviews from other posts.

      If you can wait for your camera, SBIG has a new line of USB 2
      cameras, the STX series on the way.

      I love SBIG cameras, I have 5, but the 26 second downloads on my STL
      11000, with USB 1 are painful.

      Wait for the new cameras with the better cooling from SBIG.
