Quick webcam sessions

Recommended Posts

Seized the opportunity offered by a break in the cloud to get my 1st imaging session in a very long time in. A bit rusty, so went for some Lunar imaging.... not entirely sure of the name of some of the features...

Bailey (background) and Tycho (foreground) ?

Hevelius (?) with 2.5x powermate - a bit fuzzy:

No idea what this is - wasn't paying attention:

Have to say, imaging the moon is a lot of fun. And when not capturing the preview screen makes you feel like you're flying over the moon! Awesome :)

Have fun :)

      After a few months of getting used to my new 8 inch beast, I decided to start astrophotography (luckily today is Black Friday in most tech shops in my country). So I decided to drop the idea of buying a DSLR and started thinking about getting a webcam. The thing is that I want to try deepsky AP, so i was wondering, is there a webcam that could get me good results for DSO AP? Don't worry, I don't want anything too fancy because I'll be happy with entry-level images. (i saw some nice Andromeda pictures with 20GBP cameras on this forum so I'm confident that it would work).
      My budget is ±100 GBP, which in my opinion is more than enough for a good webcam . So... is it worth getting a webcam? Or is there something better? Should I wait and raise more money for a DSLR?
       
      Thanks a lot!

      Hi all,
      I've been dabbling for about a year and am having a lot of fun.
      Nothing too serious and I don't have mega expectations but I'm starting to wonder if my images could be sharper and there's something I'm missing.
       
      I'm attaching a picture which is the best 10% of a 3 minute video with 500d 'bolted' straight to the 200p f5 scope. No filters...no barlows...just camera straight on.
      It's sharpened and saturated after the fact so in every way this is the sharpest I can get it.
      I've always had the same issue whether it's with a single shot, stacks of shots, or stacked video.
      Views through the eyepieces (circle-T 12.5/25) are mega sharp!
       
      I'm happy that collimation is very good and it was a remarkably clear night tonight.
      All in all I'd be pretty happy with this image (maybe over exposed a bit...) if the craters with shadows didn't make me want to rub my eyes.
       
      Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice!
