  2. hi all can i just ask what is so special about these webcams as im extremely new to the hobby ive heard alot of people rave about them but seen some very good images of planets with lesser talked about cams (ie xbox cam & even a £3 cam from tesco) has anyone got any images using the same equipment in the same conditions with both webcams to compare the images is it all just hype ? would like to see the evidence

  12. hi all ive only managed to capture one very small clip of saturn as i didnt have any tracking (which i have now yippeee) but its been to cloudy to get out for another try, has anyone got any settings they use on sharpcap for capturing saturn to get the best colours out of it on registax? as i say i took this not focused well & played with sharpcap settings quickly before it went off the screen then put it through the mind boggling registax im kinda pleased with it as my first atempt but would like to get a more naturaul / realistic image so any help on the settings for actually capturing it would be very appreciated.
