I don't know a great deal about astronomy, but I don't think the QuickCam
is very light-sensitive. You would probably have better luck/results with
a good video camera (I assume astronomers know a fair bit about this
topic, and which are best), which you can connect to a video capture card
in the computer.

Why exactly do you want to involve CU-SeeMe?
