Default Any info on Creative Web Cam Pro EX?`

I've just bought a Creative Web Cam Pro EX for use in astrophotography. It
has a 640x480 CCD and seems to give decent images when coupled to my
telescope(s). I've asked Creative for details on the CCD but got told that
they "don't disclose that information." Does anyone know any technical
details of the CCD and associated electronics?

Thanks

Dave Birnbaum

Hi Dave,

ISTR it has similar circuitry to the Vesta/Toucam etc and might be
modifiable for long exposure. Are you a member of QCUIAG? If not you can
join at

Take a look at message number 49788 and the following thread there. It will
give you more information

HTH
