Some Nimisis software that's been popular with star gazers and academics is Exposure, which makes long exposure images with a webcam. There's a new version out now which allows users to set where to save the resulting image and also what format, i.e. compressed or uncompressed.

For the sake of not spoiling the results, you are asked to do the test first - the theory is explained further down on this page.

Turn on the speakers and set up your webcam so that your face will be ...

Then I can ...
