    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

    • 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

  4. SaltyTea says:

    Yeah, I removed the lens
