First, let me say I am new to AAVSO, photometry, and this forum and look forward to learning about and contributing towards the science of photometry. As a beginner I ask: What ccd cameras are recommended for photometry? I am interested in recommendations for beginners and what more advanced contributors are using. If there is a thread already available on this topic I would appreciate someone directing me to it. If there is not a thread perhaps one could be started including not only beginning through advanced imagers but also those which meet the requirements of specialized areas of interest. It will be helpful for me (and hopefully others) as I progress so that I can be looking out into the marketplace for opportunities to upgrade my equipment.
