Canon announces a new 8x8inch sensor!

Canon announced a huge 8x8inch sensor for telescope use! It can record 60fps videos. It has a magnitude of 10 (naked eye has a magnitude of approximately 6). It is the world’s largest surface area for a CMOS sensor. It has 40 times the size of fulflrame sensor. Amazing! I want it too :)
