PGR FireFly 0.3 cameras gain new users

PGR Firefly cameras are still available on ebay.com. New images of planets, Moon or Sun taken with those cameras are starting to pop on the web. Some of then can be found on astro-blog.pl. If you want to use the PGR Firefly 0.3 for guiding you need to install FlyCap 1.X, but the camera is limited to 0,5 sec exposures. To overcome this limitation French astronomer wrote an ASCOM driver offering more efficient exposure mode. You can download it from webastro.net.
