If you are in Oz ( or OS and can offset postage with the cam cost ) and have one of the cameras listed below that you have no further use for, please contact me via email with your offer and we can see if we can strike a deal. Help out a beginner Astrophotographer
Connectix Black & White (PPort) webcam.
