Then I went to Jupiter, and I could see it and its moons however jupiter was completely washed out and white.
With your telescope you should be using shutter speeds of 1/6000 or faster. If you can see the moons of Jupiter you are overexposing the planet.
Lunar and Planetary are similar to daytime viewing. You can safely set up your equipment during the day and experiment with the settings.
Make sure Sens Up is off. Find a target like a wooden utility pole. Look carefully at the grain of the wood as you try various settings especially APC.
Check the Yahoo Mallincam group at http://tech.groups.y...roup/mallincam/ Lots of good first hand advice over there.

I was in same boat as you on starting out and Jupiter. There is great help in here and I would highly recommend the below site and tutorial that I just found. It really opened my understanding of the camera, funtcions and settings in easy to understand terms... If you click on that page and scroll about 1/2 way down will see this "A Mallincam VSS Tutorial.pdf", by psu_13 dated 4-8-11.. Is a very very good primer..
