Over the last couple of months, I have been testing out my new C8 OTA and New ZWO ASI120MC Camera combination. The skies here have been so-so, so I've been getting out when I can.
First, here's a pic of the camera on my C8 and CGEM configuration:
I'm using FireCapture freeware software to capture my video files from the camera. I like it a lot. It has different recommended settings based on the object you're shooting, and you can modify those settings as needed. Super-easy.
Here is a wide-field~ish shot of the moon:
...and a nice zoomed-in shot (i.e. camera + 2x barlow) of Copernicus:
I've tried imaging Venus, but getting some chromatic aberration, most likely due to a cheap barlow:
So, overall, not too shabby. Jupiter is rising earlier and earlier, so I'm looking forward to trying out the new gear on that marvelous gas giant. Until then...
