    some astronomy use ToUCam/QC3000 connect to PC
    and get picture, but still need a desktopPC or mobilPC

    How can I use PDA coonect USB webCam , some PPC PDA already have USB host (as I know Treo650 is USB device)
    , have any driver for PDA ?

    another method is use Treo webCam coonect telescope , but I think
    CMOS camera is poor than CCD sensor

    OK the Treo does not have USB Host abilities. You would have to either make a custom adapter to connect to the bottom of your Treo, and custom software to have your treo capture images from you custom cable... Or use a laptop.

    I have not seen any PDA (Palm or Windows) that has USB Host abilities. They are designed as USB devices that connect to a host.

    Check out this thread

    The treo 650's pprocessor is designed to serve as client OR host.

    Cobalt OS 6.1 will support USB OTG but 5.x does not. Though I have heard of a box that palmone is going to put out for the LifeDrive that will allow you to hook up a camera to the lifedrive. I wonder if this is going to work on all Multi connector Palms or just the lifedrive.

    I’m a lucky man to count on both hands

    I hope treo650 can use LF "usb connect" let treo650 connect ToUcam /QC3000
    , because my friend use mobile_PC + Toucam webcam for get astronomy picture ,
    and get good picture about Mars ..
    but mobile (notebook) battery life time is very "short" , for observer mars , we need
    long time for get picture , another method is use DSLR , but
    DSLR is too expensive for me , If Treo650 can connect TouCam will saving much money for me
