Webcam comparison page

Hi all - I stumbled across this page on the web which is full of useful information concerning the relative suitability of available webcams for astrophotography:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/molyned/web-cameras.htm

I couldn't see any previous mention of it - but I apologise if there has.

Cheers
Chris

Pretty interesting. Just goes to show what we know - the ToUcam is still the best budget webcam for astrophotography.

thanks for the link chris. it would be interesting to have the lpi and celestron cameras up there too. i'd say the lpi would be about 5-7 lux compared to the toucam 11 pro at <1
