xbox webcam as guidecam.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this out? I've only plugged it in and checked PHD can recognise it which it does. I've modded mine by removing the filter and it seems to have increased light sensitivity. I'm also able to select exposures of upto 10 secs in PHD without the long exposure mod.

I'm very keen on giving this a try through my 70mm guidescope when the clouds clear.

I just made another topic about the exact same thing. In fact I cant get my 70mm into focus with any of my eyepieces either. A focal reducer solves the problem though and obviously increases the FOV. If you dont have a reducer you can probably use a 1.25mm eyepiece barrel as an extender. For me the focal point was about 2cm from full extension.
