Web Cam Question


Recommended Posts

My Nexus Webcam arrived from Rog today (cheers mate!) it all looks very cool and I'm hoping for clear skies. I do have a question though.

The camera has an adaptor so it fits in a 1.25" eyepiece barrel. The instructions say focus on something like the moon, then remove your EP from the scope and replace it with the webcam.

My question is this. How do you get different mags without using an EP?

Am I being exceptionally dim here??? :clouds2:

Hi Spud when you say mags do you mean magnifications?

If its this your on about then you just put a barlow in between the web cam and the scope.

The web cam is about the equivalent of a 6mm eyepiece I'm not sure what magnification this is

but its pretty good, if you put a barlow in front of it that multiplies the magnification by the

2 / 3 / 4 times barlows.
