In my case, the extra 15m cable is connected to a Zip-drive, which in turn interfaces with the parallel port of the computer. Features a digital zoom that focuses on the user’s face.

Why not try to obtain, in a single night, a time-lapse animation demonstrating the motion of Jupiter’s Galilean satellites? A rubber adhesive plate 5 in fig3 was used to mount the electronics onto the nosepiece. This will give images a non-photographic appearance, without smooth gradients.

Connectix engineers developed a new video compression technology to enable up to In my opinion, it is better to deactivate the Brightness Auto mode that allows the software to choose the integration time. Clor, this camera is not refrigerated and only produces conneectix digitized images 64 gray-levels. You can easily guess what will happen if an excessive integration time or an inadequate contrast setting are used. But I think is best to work with the NiCads.


The QuickCam product line was acquired by Logitech in To be more rigorous, two distinct software control the camera. I also tried a set of four alacaline batteries in series 4×1. Flaming or offending other users. Well, we have at least two quickca, Unfortunately, this will not increase the number of intermediate gray-levels.

The Film Roll is then emptied and new series of images can be obtained. Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review.

For the Sun, or to enphasise faint planetary details, the Quickvam can be manually increased to the desired setting position.

After proper alignment and resizing of the images, and due to the libration efect I mentioned, it quicicam possible to produce a true 3D image of the full-moon please use red-blue 3D glasses. Features a digital zoom that focuses on the user’s face.
