OK, as promised, two images of Jupiter, one from the Xbox cam, the other from the Toucam Pro II. You can see the Toucam is more sensitive as it picked up two moons and there is more detail on Jupiter

I went off Cliff's instructions and figured I would take pictures and explain in a bit more detail...Thanks for the initial mod Cliff. Here is the beginning...Materials used: 1. livecam 2. Plastic ru

Found another bit of film from last night which gives a little more detail from the xboxcam...

did it work before you tried to mod it?/ the yellow triangle is usually software [not properly installed

Oh okay no worries

The seller didn't post it until 5:30pm though .. Even though I won the auction sunday ... 2nd class royal mail .. Probably won't get it until tuesday now because of bank holiday! So annoying

Are 200p photos the same as 130p ?

When I look through my scope with the 10mm I see it in a lot more detail then that picture.

Should the logitech quickcam 4000 modified with telescope adaptor be able to pick up a lot of detail ?

that was just through the 25mm lense on the focuser [didn't try to focus just wanted to see if the unmodded camera would work ] the 200p has an 8" mirror yours is a 5"
