Sony ICX 694

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

I wonder whether some of you use such a chip for photometry. There are currently an SX and an Atik models that are fitted with ICX 694. Pixels are very small, only 4.54 microns but I am planning to use this chip with a short focal lenght refractor (450 mm) and with a Newton 200 mm f= 800 mm.
 I would be glad to hear opinions from you about linearity, bias level, noise etc.
