First planetary photos with webcam

Recommended Posts

They are a bit fuzzy, but here are some images that got after running my webcam videos through Registax. The webcam is just an old Logitech CMOS camera I found. It's not that great and I hope to upgrade to a CCD webcam soon.

Any tips or advise would be appreciated! I didn't mess with any of the defaults in Registax, so if you have advise on that program, I would appreciate it as well.

Telescope is an Orion Skyview Pro 8 EQ. F/4.9

These are pretty good considering the equipment used, specifically webcam.

Nice shots. Have you tried messing with the wavelet slider bars in Registax? They will sharpen up the images a bit, but don't overdo it otherwise they start to look overprocessed or grainy.
