the lack of detail is a bit annoying, i think its the webcam as opposed to anything else, but seeing was terrible, the image saw shaking all over the place, the moon looked like i was viewing a reflection it was that shakey!

i need to look through other SPC900 users jupiter shots i think to gauge how i am progressing, and yeah it was nice to get the moons :)

i have just started using a 900nc too. Not sure on the quality that can be found. will be doing the same thing as you and trolling though other peoples images. Im also using a mac and think there is an issue with the software that runs the cam.

I will have to stay up and hope for less could and try mine out with Jupiter too!

Have some sun spot shots and moon, but thats it so far.

Try dropping the exposure down a bit so it looks slightly dull when recording, that will allow you to "lift" the details up a bit during post processing - you will find that the moons probably won't be very visible at that point, but you capture more detail on Jupiter.

yeah i tried to play with the gain, exposure and gamma...my only problem is that with a tiny field of view, and no motors, jupiter speeds out of view in ~25 seconds...not too much time to adjust things before the clouds roll in again and i need to physically move the scope about.

its like looking through a 6mm EP so ~200x mag...it moves quick! thats the other reson for wanting a mount, i can do some better comparisons, i will try to keep the gain/gamma the same and redue the exposure next time...its cloudy tonight, might do some sunday night, im only working with radioactivity in the morning, its not like i need any concentration or alertness for that :)

cheers for the comments guys, its nice to know that im getting decent images, ive spent a while collimating and darkening the tube to kill off any stray light, a few more mods here and there and i should have a really nice fast imaging scope...next is the NEQ6, a DSLR and some f5 DSO photography!

can only repeat the advice above, take the exposure down a little so that it almost looks too faint on the laptop screen. Harder to focus but you should get better results. The moons may not show on an image with less bright exposure but the planet will look a little better. You are well on the way though. Try a few different gains, exposures and shutter speeds mate. Takes a while and in all honesty, it's different on every session (mostly).
