    Interesting to see if it is any good. Cams of this kind tend to be useful only for solar system objects. Taking a large series of photos and using Registax to align and combine the images has been the preferred way to do it since the days of the Philips ToUCam, which many amateur astronomers still use to this day.

  3. Unfortunately, NOT good. The USB camera interface they use is poorly implemented meaning you need to use their bad software. Also, the unit I got had a SWATH of dead pixels and the manufacturer would not replace it!
