Does anyone have any sugestions on software to run a Philips Vesta webcam on a Mac to capture astro pix? I am running a G4 with system 9 and 10.2. Any information and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I use a program called BTV to capture video on my Mac from a ToUcam Pro. Not all of the Philips webcams will run on a Mac. Whatever program you use, it will use the Philips driver so operation is about the same. One option that some people use is to run Virtual PC on a Mac, which makes it possible to capture and process the images with more refined software.
