    I’ve been trying the logitech c270 but I find it so hard to get it into focus. Even when it’s in focus it turns out very blurred. Can you help me out?

      Are you using a Barlow? What’s your scope? Do you have an image of your setup? Also, with an eyepiece, the image is clear or blurry ?

  2. SaltyTea says

    The image is perfectly clear with the eyepiece, I’m using a 2x barlow and i have a celestron 130slt. It’s just that the target is very blurry and hard to keep track of even with a goto because it’s that zoomed in

    1. hdryx says

      What software are you using with the webcam? Also did you try to directly mount the webcam without a Barlow?

  3. SaltyTea says

    I’m using sharpcap and I did try without a barlow but i couldn’t get it to focus

      Did you remove the lens from the Logitech Webcam?

      1. Astrophotography Telescope says

        In my case the lens was removed to be able to use correctly.

  4. SaltyTea says

    Yeah, I removed the lens
