as promised some of my efforts from Sunday night, using wx astrocapture software, 2 images using i420 and 2 using yuy2, 2 at best 100 frames and 2 at best 20 %.

i don`t think theres much differance, have got some more using Sharpcap software for comparison later.

Very nice indeed, Rob. I really want to have a god at this, at some stage.... The problem is money to do it! :lol:

webcams aren`t that much, Steve got a setup for £25 including the adapter and filter, free software from the net, and the good thing about using webcams on planets is you only need one or two minutes to get a capture, should be good on your light bucket

cheers Mick,

had a good couple of hours out there testing the colmination again with a new bit of software, looked almost spot on from when i did the star test last week, apparantly it was one of the coldest nights we`ve had this year, minus something or other

cheers Kim

here`s the comparrison set of images using Sharpcap software, again using yuy2 and i420 compression, best 100 frames in each.

here`s the other set again,

the only real differance i can see is that the yuy2 compression setting uses up more MB for the same capture length than the i420.

they were only 90 seconds each Phil and i know you take alot longer than that when imaging some serious stuff L.O.L.

it seamed to take longer to get the focus right or as near as i could as it was alittle cold and my hands where shaking a bit,

but mainly it was to compair the two software differances of which i think there is very little in my opinion,
