Webcam for Pempro new
      #6381262 - 02/17/14 03:06 PM

Can someone suggest a webcam for use with Pempro

I have an SSAG but it's not directly supported and I don't want to purchase MAximDL

Pempro suggests a 1.5 arc secs/pixel sampling rate

I image with an Eon 120

Thanks

I have used a PGR Chameleon with PEMPro. Sampling resolution really depends on the optics used.

Hmmm, the SSAG and the QHY5LII are supposedly made by the same company, and I seem to remember getting my QHY to work with PEMPro.

Anyway, I also use a DSI 1 color which is fully supported. Another Option would be the Toucam series webcam (IIRC the 900 especially)

I've used Philips SPC900NC webcam as well as ImagingSource DMK21au04 video camera with PemPro. The SSAG works fine but as stated, it only runs with MaximDL controlling it in the background. I here that version 3 of PemPro will support SSAG directly when it is released.
