Orion StarShoot Deep Space Video Camera Item # 52185 Processing: Stacking/processing with Registack Exposure: 2 minute recording with shutter on: 1/250 Other Equipment Used: Camera view through Orion HighLight 1.25" 3x 5-Element Barlow Lens Item # 08745 Notes: In reading the reviews following mine (Mak John) on this camera, I felt moved to add this photo of Jupiter. I think folks need to understand this is a video camera and not a high resolution CCD still camera. I am very happy with this and know it's design limitations. Maybe a photo from an end user will help so this wonderful camera's abilities. I will add video later as I collect enough for a small presentation of various objects.
