Hi Tom,
I thought it might be down to the infrared filter.
I will see how I go without one. On still photos of the moon it's not a problem as i can rectify the image afterwards.

I am interested to see how the Logitech webcam performs on my large scope. I can take video and capture colour with that for now.

The small scope I have used for initial tests is a pretty poor telescope really. It just gave me a chance to nip out and get some initial photos when there was a brief break in the cloud cover. The images from the big reflector will have far better resolution and also be far more magnified than these first, snatched attempts.

Getting the CMOS chip correctly aligned will pay dividends.
