Having recently searched the market (incompletely) and purchased a
system, I would like to comment that I find the restriction to PC:s
irrelevant - anybody who can afford such a system must first look to
usability and efficiency, and the cost of another computer including the
effort to learn its basics is negligible.

We finally bought a Photometrics 250-series with a KAF 1400 grade 3 CCD,
and as the three most cost-effective systems were Mac-based, we accepted

An alternative would have been Imaging Research's MCID, which does adapt
to Photometrics, and does run on PC:s.
