    Default How To Make An Astrophotography Astrocam from a Webcam



    Here's one of the many ways a webcam can be converted to a camera for a telescope. This is kind of an old mod but it shows pretty well the kind of things you would need to do. There is no limit on the design on these cameras, everybody pretty much goes their own way. You can check the web (places like QCUIAG ) for all kinds of links for designs and free software.

    Hi.
    What you must use a telescope?
    This may be Skywatcher 130/900?
