As I demonstrated at last night's meeting...

The Philips SPC880 webcams (and the eyepiece adaptors and IR-block filters) are still available from Morgan Computers:

Hi Ross, sorry slightly off topic, but i was unable to make 3rd May meeting as my wife was working so had to look after the kids.

I was really looking forward to picking up some tips on planetary imaging (Saturn), am sorry i missed it. Did you have a presentation - that may appear in the members area??????

Yes Ian, I loaded the PowerPoint section of our presentations into the Workshops..Astro-imaging section on Tuesday.
But for our live demos of image capture and processing - you just had to be there! ;-)
