First images March and April

These are my first attempts with a webcam. There is no barlow or filters used, just a webcam adapter attached to the lens part of the webcam. Placed webcam into the eyepiece holder, set gain low/down on the webcam settings and fiddled around with brightness until i was happy. Then i took at least a 15 sec video. I have found that roughly polar aligning the scope is quite sufficient for short videos. Video was then stacked in Registax 4 and run through Gimp 2.2.
