Really interested in this setup you have going on the tripod and separate cam viewer. How are the pictures for dark sky viewing?

Not entirely sure of what you are asking here. Are you asking about using the camera in IR mode without an IR-cut filter installed or as a normal color camera with a IR-cut filter?

Either way, for "dark sky viewing" I'm not so sure this would be a viable approach. For all the great features and strengths of the original Mobius 1 camera, low light capture is not one of them. Perhaps the Mobius Maxi might work better for this purpose?

It might be helpful if you could elaborate a bit more about what you hope to accomplish as well as specifically what you mean by "dark sky viewing".

The only night sky object I would attempt to capture with the Mobius is the Moon, and that's not dark at all.

BTW, as to your interest in the set-up pictured in my initial post #1 of this thread, that is very easy to accomplish with the Mobius. The camera was originally deigned for use by FPV enthusiasts flying drones and remote control aircraft. The camera is usually supplied with an AV wiring harness (which can also be purchased separately). This allows the camera to be externally powered through its mini B-USB port while simultaneously outputting audio and video to any analogue device using RCA plugs. In my case I output the video and audio signals to a 7 inch LCD TV which has a 1/4-20 tripod mount built in.

Maybe the A119 V3 with a different lens on it like a starlight might do what he is interested in? It has an AV out port and a sensor more suited to his purpose.

Thanks for the quick responses gents, after reading a little more in the links provided, I think this may not be a solution I was looking for

As I said in my first reply to your question, it might be helpful if you explained what you are interested in accomplishing, such as what you mean by "dark sky viewing"? You might get more useful advice from members here if you were to do that.
