astro cams

I'm very new to this, I've been messing with web cams but there is only so much you can expect from them...I'm not in to all the stacking software, I'm not great with computers. I'm wondering if there are any astro cams that work as quick capture or video capture without the difficult software but have a better image and more control over settings than a web cam. or am I just S.O.L? Any suggestions will be appreciated...thanks

I picked up one of those.  I believe I may not have all the connecting parts.  I would love to give it a try. Love to put it on the 228 my tmb.
