- jet stream
Order and service were perfect. Weather has not cooperated so my time has been spent learning rather than seeing. First light was on M42.
This is a user friendly camera. The first test images of the moon that I took came out excellent.
so good. Now if I had $299.99 for a beautiful red box substituting wireless for my control and video cables, I'd be in observing heaven. Peter Schwenn
Out of the box, loaded the driver, runs as advertised with the canned software. I now control the camera with FireCapture for better range of parameters for planetary imaging. Image wise, the electrical engineers did a good job with de-ringing the signal as I don’t see noise in the image of sharp transition in spatial/intensity objects. Now all I need is some decent seeing and for the jet stream to move north:)
I guess I was expecting a sharper image from this camera. I am somewhat disappointed with the images I've been getting. I was told that this was The Planetary camera to get but my DSLR actually gets sharper images.
I was able to get some great stacked images of jupiter with this thing. I'm giving it 4 stars because I'm not a fan of the software the company that makes the camera gives you. It is free, but since that was part of the appeal of this camera for me, it was a little disappointing. Do keep in mind though that there is plenty of free and also great imaging software out there that can be used with this camera.
