Hi Jack - It's a Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000, I think. It came with a used laptop I got - didn't realize how useful it would be!

You can see it (the cam is the little sphere) duct taped to the end of a yardstick beneath the end of the boat tail in the 3rd photo in post 129 , above.

And you can see it in action in a previous .

Edit: I spliced in an extension to the wire so I could mount the cam on the back corner of the vehicle, and still reach the laptop sitting on the passenger seat. Today's test with the longer boat tail required yet another USB extension.
