This image was taken using the
Logitech Fusion Webcam using OPEN
VIDEO CAPTURE instead of the original software provided by
Logitech. The advantage of Open Video Capture is that is allows
AVI capture imaging at the full 1.3 Megapixel imaging chip resolution
of 1280 X 960 pixels over a USB 2.0 connection.
SUN in H-Alpha - 2/9/06:
An Orion ED80 refractor on an
LXD55 mount was used with a 60mm Coronado H-Alpha filter. A modified Logitech Fusion webcam was
used at prime focus. Sky conditions were clear. A 1/10 second
exposure time was used for prominences and a 1/250 second exposure
time was used for surface detail. 30 second AVIs were taken for
each. 105 uncompressed BMPs were combined for the surface image
and 23 uncompressed BMP files were combined for the prominences.
Open Video Capture was used
to capture the above image at a resolution of 1280 X 960 pixels
and taken at 5 frames per second with the following webcam settings:
