By using the gasket and the old film package I improved my telescope / webcam setup today. That should allow me to easily search for a celestial object and as soon as it’s found, fix the webcam and capture pictures. In the meantime I tried open source software to do some finishing on the already taken pictures of the moon. Though I have to admit that I wasn’t able to really improve the quality of the sources, the software came along with some nice features, e.g. you could split an AVI-film into the separate frames. With that you are able to obtain dozens of photos by just taking a few seconds of film.
I’ll be on holiday shortly. I’ll take everything with me and hopefully will be able to provide some more photos afterwards.
