Size of the webcam is smaller, so a longer focal lenght (chip), it's ligher, cheaper, you dont have to scew it open and destruct it, you can directly put it on your laptop to start filming, you can see what youre doing etc.
The quality is better than you should expect.
Search on Google to astrophotography webcam or like.
cheers mate.

I guess that would make sense. Webcams are small, light, you can see the image on a computer and they also have a nice crop factor.

So, getting back to the original subject, the D200 would work well for Astrophotography, right?

IT's just how much time you would spend.
The 50D is very noisy @ 12800 ISO, but when you stack pictures, the program removes the noise.
The D200 is a bit noisy too, but when you have time to stay outside @ night for at least 1 hour, you can remove the noise with DSS.
So, if you have time for it, the D200 is possible.
If you dont want to stay for hours outside at night, you ll be better off with a cheaper 350D, and for the D200 equivalent, the 30D.
The price of them both is the same as 1 D200 here.
