The camera is a Toucam Pro chip with long exposure mod. You have the colour version I think denoted by "C". I have an Atik HS2 mono that I was going to use as a guide camera but since most of my DSO imaging is with a DSLR I wanted something that was independent so I went for a Synguider stand alone guide camera. I haven't had a chance to use it yet hopefully sometime over the next week or so.

I do know of some people who have successfully used an ordinary Toucam Pro as a guide camera through PHD so the Atik should work fine.
