Webcam photography... You've heard about it - but how is it done? Actually, it's fairly simple if you have the right tools.
OPT M12 - 28T Web Cam Adapter
While holding a webcam to the eyepiece of your telescope will work, unless you have eight arms or someone to help, it's not going to be easy to run your capture program, adjust the telescope's focus, or even track. What you need is a way to keep the webcam in place and OPT has the solution... the OPT 1.25" Webcam Adapter.
Designed to work with Logitech QuickCam B/W, QuickCam Express, QuickCam VC, QuickCamPro, QuickCam Pro 3000, and 3 Com Home Connect webcams, as well as others with the proper threads, the OPT Webcam Adapter simply screws into place where your webcam's lens screws in. This exposes the internal CCD chip and readies your webcam for prime focus astrophotography! Next up, place the adapter and webcam into the focuser, turn it on and focus while looking at the image on your laptop screen. Now, chose your program on your laptop, adjust your settings and begin capturing. It's just that easy.
While results will vary depending on the lux sensitivity of your webcam model, even the most modest of webcams can and will deliver some very amazing results. Give it a try!

I have recently bought this webcam adapter because I had some space left in my order and just wanted to check it out - I was curious - if it would work with Philips SPC900NC that I use as a guidecam with home made adapter (that lacks filter thread and is everything but rigid and I have to say IT WORKS - that's great. So I can mount 1.25 filters (e.g. Planet IR for planetary imaging in front of the CCD chip. For 15 bucks it's definitively worth it! Thank you OPT for a great adapter!
