Episode 8: Webcam, DSLR or CCD for imaging?

September 20th, 2012 | Posted by dwoods in Podcast

In this episode Mike and Dave discuss webcams, cameras and CCDs. Dave says DLSR (and that’s after a pint of Cola) a lot and almost chokes on air while Mike offends Saudi Arabia. We review the software products Backyard EOS and Firecapture and discuss using binoculars for astronomy. Links below to the stuff we chat about. Enjoy. 🙂
