Have you seen what some are doing with astro video cameras? Check out

I bought a Mallincam a while back. I'll likely never buy another
Amateur astronomers have been doing amazing things with video and
stuff.... I've seen pictures of Mars taken by amateurs during the
last apparition that showed more detail than pictures taken with the
largest professional scopes in the world just a few years earlier.
Some technique involving stacking numbers of individual video frames
or something. Wonderful stuff! As for me, I'm just a low tech, star
hopping, sight-seer with a worn out coat. I get a thrill out of
having ancient photons rattle down through my telescope, hit my
retina, and stop, after millions of years of travel. :)
I don't mean to hijack this thread... Congrats to
GarageWoodWorks for doing something I've never done!
