Thanks... I took a Logitech c501 webcam and took it apart.. Then took a film container as it fits right in the eyepiece socket.. This plugs into the laptop and using a software called SharpCap, it will now play on the PC and you can manipulate the settings of the camera.. The trickiest part is getting the focal length.. A little trial and error and it can be done. Now I focus the scope and drop in the cam.. Then fine tune the focus of the camera using the focusing knob while watching the Laptop..
Also using another free software called RegiStax you can take a video clip and stack it to made a photo such as this first attempt at Jupiter..
