Low-light B&W CCD video Camera $25

I don't have the specs on this Ikegami camera and I couldn't find any info on the web. It has a 24 volt AC power supply that is worth around $25 just by itself. I will give you some idea of how it performs. At a star party in the city, I had it connected it to my ST-80 and it could easily detect the bright stars in open clusters, but it didn't see much of m13. The quarter moon required me to use a 1/4" wide aperture mask to be able to view details. The camera doesn't have a manual gain adjust. With the ST-80 Jupiter and Saturn were both too bright and had to use aperture masks or ND filters to get details. I now just use a web cam with my laptop to do the same sort of things at star parties, and I have a D60 for astrophotography, so video astronomy just isn't my cup of tea. Camera is threaded for standard tripods. Asking $25 plus shipping.

I also have two C-mount accessories that I will sell with the camera if the buyer is interested.
$20 C-Mount to 1-1/4" adapter - - Allows camera to be inserted into a standard 1-/14" diagonal, etc.
$30 C-Mount to T-Mount adapter - - Allows threaded connection to a telescopes T-threaded accessories, also allows the use of T-Mount camera lenses.

P.S. I am trying to raise some money to get Ron Wodaski's New CCD Astronomy book, so trades along those lines are welcomed.
