This camera is a CCD, whereas all of my other ones are cmos. I'm going to have to get another one of these, for sure! I want to do the lx mod on one of them if I can get a 2nd one. This camera makes an incredible planetary and lunar cam. Here are a few of the images I have taken with it.:
|Plato and the Alpine Valley|
|The Straight Wall|
As you can see, the detail is so much better with this camera, I was amazed at what I was seeing on the screen!
While I was at it, I thought I'd shoot a video of Saturn, being the moon pics were so detailed, so here's what I got:
Ok, now for the complete story. The sky was filled with thin clouds, transparency was not very good. Seeing appeared good to average. I took the saturn image too dark, and had to boost the light level to stack it. It is not as good as it could be. The camera will take some getting used to before I get everything correct. Even though the conditions werent too good, this is one of my best images of Saturn so far.
