The Universal WebCam Adapter

Go to the "Mogg Adapter" Web Store for your Astronomy Imaging needs

If you are interested in using a web cam to perform astronomical imaging work you will need to adapt the camera by some means to your telescope eye piece. The Universal WebCam Adapter (UWA) is a simple device that screws into the Web Cam in place of the original lens. For history on the UWA development. For WebCam information visit AstroCam site. If you are interested in how they are made click here

If you are interested in getting a Universal WebCam Adapter then fill in Order Form. I generally ship orders within a week.

*** NOTE: A PARFOCal ring can make it a lot easier switching between eyepeice and camera when locating and tracking your target. You can also use an F-0.3EXT as an eyepiece barrel extender if you need to get your eyepiece further back to get it para-focal with your camera. ***
