After almost three weeks of clouds I finally had a clear night here in Tecumseh Oklahoma USA , it still looks like the jet stream has taken up permanent residence over my back yard though .
This little web cam is quite a camera and I can't
wait until I get some really good seeing to see
what it is capable of .

This Jupiter image is a stack of 143 from 640 , ToUcam
Pro, 14.5 Starmaster/Zambuto , 4x Televue Barlow .

Stacked in Registax and processed in Registax and ImagePlus

If that's what you call bad seeing, you are way ahead of me. A beautiful image.

very nice detailed image. I just ordered a ToUcam Pro for planetary imgaing ( after trying a dig cam and a ccd cam )
It seems the only way to go to beat the seeing. It's amazing what a $90 camera can do.

When I get it, perhaps I can callon you for some advice as to how to best use it.

clear skies,
