Which Webcam?

Hi, It's been a while since I've posted anywhere. Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum, I didn't find a webcam forum on the list.

I no longer have a newsgroup connection and I miss sci.astro.amateur. (chunga)

I recently unearthed two webcams, logitech quickcam express, and logitech quickcam pro 4000. Which one is better suited for webcam imaging?

They actually appear to be quite similar in outward appearance. They will be attached to a super c8+.

Are there any good resources for mounting? or do people make thier own? I'd also like to attach to std microscope as well.

I would like to show local science teachers how to use webcams for imaging and the stacking process.

I downloaded Registax and will try it out, Any suggestions on other freeware stackers?


Thanks for any help you can give!
