Hi all,

not sure if this qualifies as video astronomy.
Captured this image of Saturn through a Skywatcher webcam using a 10" Dobsonian.
Feel free to move.

Cheers
Wayne.

Hi Ian, it's been a while. Not sure about outstanding, but I'll take it :lol:
Lots of resets with the push and pull dob to finally capture it.

Great picture. I tried a webcam with my 5" skywatcher to get Saturn (my avatar piccy) but it's nowhere near as good as yours!

Nice!

I just ordered a new webcam (Logitech C270) and adapter because my last one (some very old logitech I had sitting around) kinda took a dive after sitting for far too long.

Trying to dip my toe carefully into the whole AP thing without taking a second mortgage.

Looking forward to getting back under the stars and getting some lunar and planetary imaging under my belt before I try DSOs (that's where the 2nd mortgage comes in, lol)
