I took this image last night using the Celestron NexImage, a cheap CCD camera that I hooked up to my tablet PC. The image is tilted about 15 degrees counter-clockwise because I didn’t line up the camera when I inserted it. Live and learn.
The NexImage was very easy to use. It sits where the eyepiece goes and captures AVI files. I then used RegiStax, a really nice image-processing program, to comb theough the frames, average and align them to create this image. The interface is a bit kooky but there are lots of tutorials out there to get you going.
I’m looking forward to doing more of this. I may invest in a field reducer so I can fit more of the moon in a shot. Hopefully next time I will get an image of Saturn. The NexImage is only good for lunar and planetary imaging, but with a dobsonian mount that’s all I’d be able to do anyhow.
