. . . on which low price webcam options to get (sammy 2000,gstar, mintron) and also what additional accesories or DIY changes you have to perform to get it to work. Generally I believe you can probably get an 8sec-17sec capture device this way for maybe under $200 ??

Quote:The Neximage 5 seems to work better for lunar and solar shots and not as well for the planets. Something about the shutter?

Quote:For planetary, the main obstacle is the seeing. Using many very short exposure images, selecting just few good ones, then stacking them to gain a higher S/N image, is the name of the game. This is called Lucky Imaging.Shorter exposure is the key, not shutter, nor shutter types, e.g., mechanical shutter, electronic global shutter (SPC900NC has that), electronic rolling shutter (neximage 5 has that).Clear Skies!ccs_hello
