  1. Help! While trying to get a webcam image of the moon, the magnification is too great, and i can only get a small portion of the moon in shot. I'm plugging a phillips 900 (?) webcan into the eyepiece hole on a celestron nexstar 6se. any tips? I'm using smartcap software to capture the images.
  2. Help! I have a 6" SCT which I use in my edge-of town back garden. Usually, I can only see the orion nebula. I'd like to see more nebulae, but am conscious of the seemingly high cost of filters. Any suggestions?
