Qastrocam is a capture program that can work with any video4linux device (see the home page for a complete list). Its main purpose is to do astrophotography. It can control a telescope to do guiding with the images received from the video device. It can also control the extended features of a webcam modified to do long exposure (several seconds) captures. Images can be saved in a variety of formats including, BMP, PNG, and JPEG.
