Modding an 840K toucam for long exposure

Hi guys, just a quick question...Who does this modification? Is Telescopes & Astronomy in SA the only place that does it?

Thanks.

Only place I know of John, but that means nothing. Could be done in lots of places, just that T&A is the only one I know of.

John, I found this link on how to Mod the Toucam Pro II

No wonder they charge about $140-150 to do it!!!! Looks like a nightmare.

With our track record Asi, it's best left to the experts.
Me with the BBQ and you with the electric blanket, yep leave it to the experts I say.



Telescopes & Astronomy in SA is where I got mine.
Very happy.
