Hi Paul,There is someone here who managed it I think the main problem is allowing access to the parallel port which can be done with XP but possibly not with later Windows. Re the quality, it seems many people for some reason run 2x binned which gives rather poor low resolution images which would be undersampled with a typical setup eg manual appears to state is the native resolution of the camera. actually the ICX083 CCD used is 752×582 x11.6umwhich should give a reasonable image if a rather small field by today’s standards. I doubt you would get images which would be considered of any quality though these days unless you can access this native CCD resolution. CheersRobin
