== How a Mono Camera works == Monochromatic or mono cameras are simply cameras with just the digital sensor without the CFA layer on it. They're typically more expensive than colour cameras presumably due to the smaller market for sensors without the CFA. When imaging with a mono the astrophotographer must intentionally acquire a series of images with different filters if a color image is desired. Lack of any filters will result in a “black and white” image, where each pixel is simply recording how much light it absorbed, regardless of the wavelength of that light. This brings us to filters, the topic of this section.
