However what is a simple webcam setup?

1. cannot do long exposure (e.g., max. sub-one second) without mod such as SC1
2. do not have high enough gain
3. nowadays, more and more webcams are using tiny CMOS sensor with super-fine pixel pitch
With all of these, they are more suited for solar system imaging.
BTW, this thread is better fit in beginning imaging subforum. You'll get more feedback there.

This is one of my old webcams; a Phillips SPC900NC repackaged in a Radioshack kit box. I still use this camera as an e-Finder to help me point my high resolution imaging scope.
