Link to FireCapture Added

Hello everyone,

With increased interest in Firewire cameras for planetary imaging, I’ve just added 2 links to a capture program called FireCapture, created by TorstenEdelmann. The “beta” link is for a new version that supports PointGrey Research cameras such as the Flea3.  Please access these links under “Image Acquisition” in the right sidebar of our site.

Dark skies,
