I've already tried imaging with my digital camera in video mode shooting at 24fps. I took a couple of AVI's of Mars just from holding the camera above the EP. I read an article on how to process images and found it to be a whole heap of fun. The image was over exposed and bright but after that small experience I needed more. I could see the redish orange of Mars and a ring of blue sorounding it.

So I have had a very tiny amount of experience with a digital camera.

What I really don't want to do is buy the 900nc spend between $150 -> $200 then soon after wanting to buy the DBK costing around $350 -> $400. Donít forget I am on a budget .
