Webcam imaging with small telescopesMost owners of small telescopes sooner or later try webcam imaging with their instruments. It seems an easy, straightforward and inexpensive way to get started with astrophotography. But their first attempts are almost always disappointing. Frustrated, they blame it on the small aperture of their telescopes. They could not be more mistaken. Even small telescopes in the 3- to 4-inch class (as the telescope shown below) can produce stunning images of the Moon and bright planets, such as Jupiter and Saturn. The key to high-resolution images is simply to pay a lot of attention to the imaging process itself. You will find out that it is more important by far to work carefully than to use large telescopes.
