|Wednesday 28 November 2012, Jupiter and four moons.|
640 × 480 pixel uncropped image from Xbox 360 webcam,
No filters, prime focus, SkyWatcher SK1309EQ2 telescope.
Single snapshot using wxAstroCapture under Linux.
The physical camera setup is as described before, an XBox 360 webcam with a telescope nose adaptor added and the red glass IR filter removed (correction - this camera still had the original red glass IR filter).
Using the aperture mask (the round cover for the telescope opening with an opening about 5cm) as a quick way to cut down the light (aka stopping down, simpler than messing with the image capture size) I was able to get some shots where Jupiter's stripes were visible too - at the expense of losing the faint moons. Without post-processing to stack the images though, they are not very impressive. I tried Keith's Image Stacker for Mac OS X, but sadly it didn't understand the AVI files from wxAstroCapture.
A few days later I had another clear night and experimented with capturing at the native resolution of 1280 × 960 pixels, and decided rather than saving as AVI files I'd try the folder of FITS format images. I've not found a tool look at those yet, let alone stack them for image processing. Sigh.
Pretty poor compared to some of the images posted on this thread or this thread - but there are some useful tips there like don't use auto-exposure, and turn down the gain.
