I can think of costs for example, also from what I read you do not have to expose for 5 min like with a CCD.

So, we have the uncooled vs cooled CMOS Zwo cameras, having a TEC has massive advantages over uncooled cameras.

However this is the kind of image you can get from an uncooled ZWO 174MM in 7nm Ha Filter.

And another example from the same user, and with a 7nm Baader Ha filter.

I do like the uncooled ones as I could mount it as follow, I do have that bracket.

If the uncooled cameras (talking about Zwo only here) were that bad, I mean everyone is banging their drums about cooling....
why is Zwo keeping an uncooled camera line?!?!

I am interested in the 174MM or 183MM for my Nikon lens to be used as widefield.

Too new of a mount, it is nice and with good features but I think like everything else you'll have to wait until the bugs are corrected... if any.
