The Italian astronomy magazine Nuovo ORIONE published a detailed test report on the DMK 21AF04.AS and DFK 21AF04.AS in their January 2008 issue.
The cameras were tested on their ability to perform in planetary and deep sky imaging. Furthermore, the article contains a paragraph dedicated to the camera control software IC Capture.AS. This software is shipped with all astronomy cameras, manufactured by The Imaging Source.
The author of the article concludes that The Imaging Source astronomy cameras are much better suited to planetary imaging than traditional web cameras, as their noise is far lower and their resolution far higher.
Turning his attention to deep sky imaging, the author is convinced that the cameras are absolutely suited to capturing relatively faint Messier objects.
