  1. I have a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000. I read somewhere that not all Pro 4000s have a CCD sensor, apparently some are CMOS. It works with windows 7 and have used it with Sharpcap although I was not able to get as much control over the exposure etc. as I have seen for other cameras. I am not sure why because I have only just started imaging.
  2. Thanks for posting this, what a fantastic video.
  3. Great image, well done. I have also recently produced my first shot of Jupiter and it gave me immense pleasure just getting it in focus and being able to see some surface detail. Do try stacking, I have registax and it is easy to use.
  4. This is my first attempt at an image of Jupiter taken on 14/01/13 using a Logitech quickcam pro 4000, 1200 frames put through registax 6. The scope is a Celestron Nexstar 6se that I synced to Jupiter. I was pleased just to be able to get the planet focussed on the camera, what do you think? Jupiter #1 140113.bmp
  5. Yes it is the one reduced to £24.99. It has a cigarette lighter type socket on the side and the cable that come with the unit fits the scope power socket. The battery is 7Ah and the scope draws 075 A according to the manual I have, so the battery should last for hours.
  6. The maplin jump starter comes with a suitable cable for connecting to the scope and it is reduced at the moment. I have one and it works a treat.
  7. Just bought one to power my Nexstar 6se. Thanks for the post, much cheaper than the celestron power tank.
