I've just dusted off my ~40 year old wedge mounted C8 (and a fortune of old oculars), which I've used only sporadically for the past 30 years. My plan is to set it up in a modified tool shed in our backyard with visibility of a patch of sky overhead, and observe from the comfort of my den. (It's getting cold here in Apex, NC, and, at the age of 80, my blood is a little thin.) I've checked out the telescope optics, and hooked up an old SPC900NC camera to it, with a ~75 ft USB active cable running to an old PC. So far so good! I would like to get a better camera, and I'm thinking about the QHY5111 CMOS 178C camera, which I would like to hook up to my circa 2012 MacBookAir which only has a USB2 port. Will this work?
As you can see, I'm a novice at this, and would appreciate any help you might provide.
PS. I've got some other old stuff, e.g., a Lumicon Sky Vector and a Jim's Mobil Mototrak II, which I can add later.
