G4NNS Web Cam Astronomy
These images have been made from village of Redenham in North west Hampshire using a small astronomical telescope with a Web Cam coupled to the eyepiece.
The Moon imaged from Redenham


The large crater just above and to the left of centre is "Ptolemaeus" it is 153Km in diameter, below it is "Alphonsus" which is 118Km in diameter . To the left is "Mare Nebium" The sea of Clouds.
This image was made using a Phillips ToUcam CCD webcam and adapter to fit the web cam into the eyepiece of a Mead ETX125EC telescope. The image processing software was K3CCD which can be found at …http://www.pk3.host.sk/Astro/….. although this was a single un-processed image.










At centre left is Mare Humorum the Sea of Moisture. Above it is the crater Gassendi 100Km in diameter.

At centre left is the crater Kepler 32Km in diameter with a bright "Ray System" of debris from the impact. Above and to the left is Oceanus Procellarum The Ocean of Storms.

Saturn imaged from Redenham




This image was made in far from ideal seeing conditions with mist forming. Saturn was at a distance of about 770,000,000 miles at the time.












This rather fuzzy picture of Jupiter was taken with clear but very turbulent skies so no detail is visible on Jupiter. However it clearly shows three of Jupiter’s moons, From the left Europa, Io and Ganymede.
