Yesterday I loaded a digital photo of the crater Copernicus to my website. I used a 20" Dob with rather mediocre optics. The mirror has substantial astigmatism that limits it to low power use. http://www.pageaz.net/~spooner/video_page.htm Click on the Copernicus link at the bottom of the page. The file is approx 110K in size. There are video files of the planets with a better mirror. I have had better results with video due to the eye's intergration of a large number of frames and it's smoothing effect of the seeing. Neither method does more than closely approach what is viusally seen but are satisfying in the ease of execution. I never had even marginally comparable success with film. --Mike Spooner --- This message is from the AZ-Observing mailing list.
