webcam attachment


Recommended Posts

Hi all I'm looking for a webcam that has a attachment to attach to my tablet which is a Motorola XOOM. If I can I would like to attach this to my telescope which is a skywatcher explorer 130 / 900 . If I can find something to attach these two things together I'll be able to look at the sky a lot more as I'm struggling to get outside. I would be very grateful if someone could give me some ideas of how to complete this act as it may stop me from buying a new laptop instead but if I have to then so be it thanx again. Jimmy :-)

Generally webcams come with a usb attachment.

First research is will you motorola zoom accept a OTG cable.

I use usbwebcameras android app on my nexus andoid tablet with an OTG cable to connect the webcam usb cable to the tablet.

With Rooting a device there is always a risk of bricking it.
