Good CCD for the price
This is a good CCD for the price. It is equal to a modified webcam with easy to use software. The CCD has met all of my expectations. I have taken some really good photos, which have impressed all my friends and family. It has a live video feed that would be useful at busy star parties. This will not work on deep sky objects.

The only negative is it doesn't have a guide port for tracking. It will work as a guide camera, but requires an extra USB to RJ-12 adapter. It is not a deal-breaker in my book, because it works really well for the planets.

For the price, this is a great tool to have in your kit.

Exceeds Expectations!!!
Celestron NEXImage 5 planetary CCD.
This going to be a fun camera to have.
Received camera today and took it out for a test spin immaging Saturn through an 11 SCT same night.
Simple to operate, period!
The printed instruction manual is refreshing to have in hand as you walk through the whole process.
If you have serious experience with planetary imaging or if you understand and have the patience forcusing during poor to fair seeing conditions, you are going to love this camera and are in for a treat!

Is this suitable for use with a spotting scope? Is Mac software included?

You have said that the results for Ha scopes could be iffy. What about white light filters on an SCT or small (80mm) refractor.
