Tony,
A webcam for planetary pics (moon, mars, jupiter, etc) and a DSLR for Deep Space pics(nebula, galaxies).

Hi Tony,
I downloaded it to try but it keeps on stuffing up or just wont run on my lappy,using Vista. So i downloaded "Debut Video Capture" instead and it works a treat.It's Just a capture programme but it does have Brightness,Contrast and Gamma controls while you are looking and capturing.
Cheers,
Duncan

try looking at a tree, the hills or power lines in the distance first, its not easy to find targets as youre at about 300x mag with the webcam so make sure your finder is aligned properly.
this bird was sitting on the powerlines a few hundred meters away

the thing was that where ever i pointed the scope, all i saw was nothing. no stars or clouds or fuzzy things...just pitch blackness. When i turned the webcam on with out the scope, i saw some blurry image which i presume is expected from a webcam with out a lens
