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 ?
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
What software are you using with the webcam? Also did you try to directly mount the webcam without a Barlow?
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?
In my case the lens was removed to be able to use correctly.
Yeah, I removed the lens
Hi , i would like to buy sky watcher telescope to see the moon so closely just like the image above ,
could you please tell me how to buy sky watcher 150/750 , and also what else do i need to buy with it , to see the moon so close and clearly , your help will much be appreciate it , thank you in advance ,
Hello Sameer and sorry for the late response,
The Skywatcher 150/750 is a great telescope for both planetary and deep sky astronomy / astrophotography. If your main target is the moon, i advice you to buy a Mak telescope (maksutov) because it has a longer focal and better contrast. Here are 2 Mak telescope by Skywatcher :
Of course it depends of your budget. The Mak are more expensive 😉
