I recently acquired a used Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera - it has a nice feature that allows you to take a zoomed video in a special crop mode. I've got good results in the last couple of nights using my C6 - attached are (processed) images of Copernicus and Clavius.

 

I am finding that processing the images and having to analyse them is really helping my visual observation - I am seeing detail in my visual that I remember from the earlier image.

Absolutely, it takes time to find all the little gems trying to hide from visual view by the turbulent atmosphere, I regularly make pictures with a CFF350, but use that instrument and a 20 inch dobson of decent quality visually, dont always feel to have a screen between me and the observation :)

Hallo Peter!

 

the astrophotos of Moon are helpful when preparing for the visual observations.

I also take an afocal pic of the Moon, then look up in the atlas some features of interest,

and finally return to the eyepiece.

I'm too just discovering the capabilities of the camera on my new mobile phone. Taking just hand held shots produces quite nice result. Usually, I can see visually more through the same instrument. However, it looks like sometimes the camera records targets that I was not able to saw (like my recent post about rimae in Palus Epidemiarum).

This has as well happened to me, to oversee some rimae.

Then, they have been eveident on the afocal pic, a good reason to return to the eyepiece.
