USB box camera support for PA

Post by dts350z » Mon Jun 11, 2018 7:16 pm

Is there support for an inexpensive "usb box camera"?

Like the ones used on drones with S mount (12mm) lenses?

I'm wondering about an under $75 or $50us solution for Polar alignment, for folks with guide scopes that are too long or using off axis guiding.

I would guess IR monochrome would be best?

25mm f1.4 or f1.2 IR lens is doable ($12US) in that price range (and similar FL to polemaster). Huge FOV compared to 0.5 degrees, however.
