BTW, this forum is mainly for Electronically Assisted Astro, your question is more suitable for Beginner's Imaging subforum.
Quote:So, a camera that shoots video at 15 frames a second isn't a video camera? Sorry, I don't buy that! Sorta splitting hairs here.

Quote:Has anyone captured Jupitor or Saturn through this? Has anyone tried it attached through a large Dob?
Quote:Any alternate thoughts on an economical means ($100)of capturing images through the focuser of a Dob for planetary viewing? I was thinking of using a 2x Powermate instead of focal reducer. At 10 to 15 shots per second, can't you capture the planetary image rather quickly (instantaneously).
