Saturn Jupiter – my very first efforts using a webcam and camcorderSaturn

Jupiter with webcam Jupiter
Jupiter - my first effort, using a Philips Toucam II, an Apple G3 iBook, and Keith's image stacker. About 30 frames stacked and sharpened. Not much better on the second attempt. In the original image, I can see two of the four moons. However, both are lacking colour.
Jupiter with Camcorder
I'm a little bit happier with this one, because there's a bit of colour and the image is a lot bigger. It was taken using a Canon MV300 Digital Camcorder at medium to high zoom through a Dobsonian reflector (specs: 8.75" f/6 144x (72x with 2x barlow)).
