I'm selling my Vesta Pro webcam that has been modified to take long exposure astro photos. This camera has been modified to SC 1.5 (full computer control with amp off). The camera electronics were removed from the standard Vesta shell and placed in a custom build electronics enclosure with 12v thermal electric cooling (cooling the CCD makes for much smoother pictures and longer exposures). The camera is capable of taking single shot 8 bit color photos. Great camera to learn CCD photography. I can send pictures of camera and dark frames via e-mail.

Included for $225.00
*Modified camera with TEC cooling
*Original webcam lens
*Shipping to CONUS (international will be extra)
*1.25" Mogg adaptor w/filter threads
*CDR with current Windows drivers, and internet links to download freeware capture and image stacking software.
*If you can use it, I'll throw in a custom .3 focal reducer (your scope will need a lot of forward focus - it works on my 8" LX200)

Camera Needs USB, Parallel Port (for long exposure control), and 12v power supply for cooling (fully functional w/out cooling)

Attached is a shot of M27 taken with this camera in my horribly light polluted back yard.


**Update - dropped price to $225.00
