I had more fun shooting the Moon and Saturn last night with Bill Burke's great AP-150 refractor and my ZWO L&P camera.
As usual seeing around here was only fair to awful, with images dancing al over the place. Single shot imaging would have been impossible but the webcam came through as you can see. The two attached images of the Copernicus region show the stack of about 60 of the best (out of ~450 total exposure in the movie clip), before and after processing in the wavelets function of Registax. all were shot in grey scale through a 2X Barlow and deep red filter.
The image of Saturn was shot under similar circumstance in color without the red filter. Not great but getting there.
Ain't modern technology wonderful?
