Orion StarShoot 3MP Planetary Imager or Celestron
Posted 05 January 2013 - 03:51 AM
Does anyone know "first hand" if this is true? Ive seen on the web supposedly how to download the drivers from the Celestron site, but it definitely looks flaky.
I have a friend who is involved with astrophotography cameras and the weak link seems to be in installing the drivers even with his cameras, which as of lately, has really turned me off to all of this. He sells them, and cant even get his software to run on his PC, so this is pretty discouraging.
For people that know, would you think I'd better off just going with the Orion model?
I don't dabble in astrophotography at all except for with my digital camera attached to the back of my MaxView 40 eyepieces, and I know first impressions can make or break an interest in something new.
Any thoughts on this from someone just curious about having fun with the planets, moon and the sun?
It doesn't mater to me that one is worth more than the other since it was a freebee anyways.
Thanks for any inputs on this...

On my Win 8 64 bit also.
He has a flaky Win 7 box most likely
