Quote:Still, I am more than happy with what I see and the images captured are better than I would have expected. Trust me - the 400 to 500 lines are not awful.
Quote:maybe i made my first of many mistakes by buying that camera! the one thing that really attracted me to this camera was the 1080p. my interest is in live viewing with a group of people, and i have a large tv, and the idea of having a resolution of 400 or 500 lines seemed really awful to me.i guess if it turns out that it's crummy, then i'll see about getting a different one.

Quote:thanks for all the advice. i really appreciate it.i ended up getting an samsung SNB-7001. it was only a few hundred dollars, and it'll do 1080p which i'm excited to try out.now i just have to figure out how to attach it to my telescope!

Quote:and here is another screen shot with 60x sens-up active, but of course it's horribly over exposed and the software does not seem to be able to have controls to reduce it (or i can't figure them out.)
Quote:That camera is not similar to the scb2000. It is lower resolution and much less sensitive...like the camera you currently have. Just get a scb2000 or 4000. Don't waste money on an IP camera.
