Scope: 8" f10 LX200, prime focus, with 2X barlow (f20).

Camera: PC23C video camera from Super Circuits, modified by me to prevent video gain from rising on small bright targets.

Capture device: ATI All In Wonder Pro video card at 640 by 480 resolution

Left image is the raw capture. Right image was processed with a 10 pixel unsharp mask and the contrast was stretched.

Seeing was moderately awful.
