  1. Here's my first effort at lunar snapping... Mars was disappointingly overexposed, I suspect... mars.bmp

    Hello everyone!

    Welcome Steve - it's good to see 2 more astronomers from Wrexham! I join up with another guy off here, Faulksy, to go up to Horseshoe Pass for some darker skies, occasionally. There are several from Wrexham on this esteemed forum. It's time to form a Society!
  3. Thanks for all the help - I finally bit the bullet and squished 'em! Had a lot of fun last night but the only object I could see through the cam, using sharpcap, was the moon. How do I adjust the sensitivity to make imaging the planets a possibility?
  4. I'm trying to build up the confidence to squish the leds! Can't paint them as I don't have any paint. Got a toothpick or needle ready - will they do the job? Or do I leave them and put up with a little extraneous noise?
  5. Thanks so much Peter. Just one more question... How does the adapter attach to the webcam? Cheers Andy
  6. I've just bought an xbox webcam for 3.95 from the bay. It needs a little modification but the pictures others are putting on the xbox thread in diy astronomy, look pretty good. At that price it has to be worth a go! Good luck.
  7. I've got my xbox cam and I've read the whole thread but I'm now more confused than when I started! The photos at the very start make it seem like a piece of cake but it quickly turns into a gateaux... 1. Is it best to leave the webcam lens in or remove it? 2. Should I remove the ir filter or leave it in? 3. Do I need to destroy the leds, paint over them or leave them alone? 4. Do I need to purchase an adaptor or use a piece of tubing to fit it to the scope? Excuse my ignorance! Andy
  8. Been on the news apparantly - seen over Warrington. I live in Wrexham and missed it. Damn!
  9. Grab it while you can eh? Congratulations on a great first night - dslr pics too, you must be a whiz at this game! Clear skies - it sounds like you'll be making the most of them! Andy
  10. It's not Chris Huhn's missus is it?
