If you're looking for a webcam for astrophotography, have a look at this link:
www.pulsar-optical.co.uk/1309.html
Price also includes a 1.25" adaptor.

Thanks Michael,
Another site I recommended to some of the lads in the club was

www.perseu.pt/index.html?lang=en-us

They also have the IR blocking filter that would have been handy when Mars was around, and because its in Portugal its all in euros.
They have the camera + adapter at a very good price, dont know about shipping though.

Michael,
I found them a number of months ago, one thing I'm trying to gat away from is just looking at english and US sites for equipment, I'm going to pay more attention to mainland europe sites, afterall this portugese site is cheaper, although shipping might counter that :? ,
