I just found out how to do this an easy way, you have to buy amcap thought but works great, no corrupt files on test.avi blank, I will test it out when conditions are good , right now to much clouds

here is the guide

I think program firecapture astronomy software has to many bugs

I just made a video of the clock in the kithcen using my telescope and ccd camera and the software amcap and the guide work perfectly, framerate for planets have to be 10, and you have to do some tweaks, using the guide, best so far I found

Clouds in Jupiter are actually the result of wavelet processing in Registax or some similar program rather than firecapture. What firecapture does is give you an easy interface to capture raw AVI files with. You don't want to compress those AVI files at all as most codecs destroy planet data. The best images I see of Jupiter from my friends are taken with a DSLR using Images Plus to do live frame captures and are done on a C9.25 with a barlow lens. Even still before the image is processed it looks way blurry.

where can I buy C9.25 barlow lens for Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS? Telescope is Meade ETX LS 6, yeah it doesn't look great the image when I captured with webcam. My Canon doesn't have video recording by the way. Would make photographing planetary much easier

I am going away for few days Upnorth

I already have ordered the televue powermate adapter 2x, and the t-ring, now I have to wait 3 weeks until it comes in, darn waiting period, until then I practice without the adapter cause Jupiter came out nice
