Nice image good detail. Were you using lucky imaging with the video cam? I've been playing a bit with it. But using a SSD recorder that will record uncompressed HD video. Thinking that will up the detail quiet a bit. But its so tiny with the lenses I have it will have to be perfect so I can enlarge it enough to be a decent size. I don't have a scope just the DSLR and tracking mount. The water in the atmosphere really rules this type of imaging though. Its pretty humid here and I notice it a lot the reason I'm rethinking workflow for planet and moon images. What's the focal length of your scope?

My scope is a 8 inch aperture newtonian, f5, and 1000mm focal length, with the barlow lens 5x its a f25 5000mm

Stacking is the same as 'lucky imaging' i think? not sure, but yeah an AVI is captured and the best frames stacked to make the final image using freeware software (autostakkert!2 and registax6) Smile
