Hi all,

I was glad to have some clear skies after weeks of clouds yesterday so I gave my C9.25 it's first webcam session at the moon. Seeing was bad and even decreased during the session but I'm surprised that a few acceptable frames exist in the AVIs.
Here's the first processing of the bunch, Theophilus & Cyrillus:

C9.25, Meade 2x Barlow #140, s/w ToUcam ICX098BL @1/33s - 5fps, Astronomik redfilter
2x300 frames stacked, once aligned on Theophilus and once on Cyrillus, results combined

Here the best raw-frame, unfortunately very few of this quality can be found in the AVI:

Clear skies & best regards,

Great image, sometimes it pays to hang in there and wait for those few seconds of good seeing.

Oliver -

For bad seeing you certainly pulled a pig out of the poke! Excellent image.

That is a very nice image and processing. I like your website as well. How does your Vixen VMC200L compare to your C9?

Hi Oliver,

That's a great first session for your 9.25. I wish I could get images like that in bad seeing. Thanks for sharing.

Clear skies,
