|Focal length:||6860 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1 sec|
|Notes:||Shot with the humble Philips SPC880/900 webcam (really!) ;-) 5x Powermate (like a teleconverter) on an f9 telescope with a 1372mm focal length giving an effective 6860mm at f45 I shot about 2 mins of video at around 15fps & then took the 'best' 1000 frames & stacked those then used Wavelet sharpening to draw out the details.|
