Nice shot, care to explain how you obtained the shot with the webcam, im looking into getting one.

Thanks

Jay :(

It's quite easy really, but you will need a need an adapter to attach the wbcam to your telescope and a ir/uv filter(so iv'e heard).I got mine from morgans along with the webcam spc 880. Apparantly it's one of the best you can get. the hardest thing is getting focus right and playing around with the settings, but you get there in the end.

You will also need a program like sharpcap or craterlet and a program called registax for stacking the avi's.
