A Close up of a sun spot that I captured using my home made white light filter. The tutorial for making it can be found here http://www.viewfromascope.com/how-to-make-a-solar-filter/ This was taken using a modified webcam which was then processed in registax
My first image of Saturn through my Skywatcher 150p, This was taking using the webcam technique. This involves taking a short video of your target object, then separating out each frame. Then stacking these separate frames on top of each other thus building up a nice detailed image. A tutorial can be found here http://www.viewfromascope.com/webcam-astrophotography/

An image of the half moon taken using a webcam on a skywatcher 150p, you need to capture different areas of the moon one at a time as the field of view is to narrow. These separate images were then aligned in photoshop to create this complete image.
Who’s visiting who? This chart of solar system exploration shows every robotic space probe currently exploring (or about to explore) a major solar system object… except for the Earth and Sun of course, because there are way too many of those to show on one chart.
