Webcam or DSLR?

Recommended Posts

Hello again, sorry for the barrage of posts here, but I'm a newbie hungry for information.

I've understood from advice and reading posts on here that astro-photography is a minefield, with significant investments required to get reasonable results. I'm therefore not expecting miracles from my circa £300 telescope when I eventually get around to choosing one.

I know you can but adapter rings to mount a DSLR onto the telescope, but I was told that many use webcams instead for imaging planets. But how do you mount these on the telescope?

Any recommendations for particularly suitable webcams?
