Wow. I was going to post some crappy shots of the moon that I’ve taken, but those pictures put them to shame! I’ll post them anyways, but I have already been overshadowed!
Some backstory: Last year I was working on a research project with the RaspberryPi and imaging. I decided to see how well the RasPi would work(with its webcam) at taking pictures. The result? Terrible. This is due to the settings such as exposure timing and shutter timing being hardcoded into the webcam. Thus, we could not shorten or lengthen the exposure times. It effectively killed the project. Our initial goal was to use background stars, or the objects we were viewing, along with image recognition and installing stepper motors to motorize and allow tracking for a dobsonian. We never passed the tracking stages for the reasons above. It was a good lesson in hardcoded proprietary hardware though. All of these were taken through an 8" dobsonian. The dust/specs on the moon photos were some oils or a piece of dust on the raspi CCD. We replaced the camera after seeing those pictures. We did take pictures through a 14" which came out quite nicely(of the moon only), but they are only on the poster itself which I am too embarassed to link here.
Edit: Basically, that’s the cheapest astrophotography you can do, but it isn’t so good. 40$ for the Pi, 20$ the webcam. 2$ pvc/E-tape adapter. I don’t recommend it for anything but enjoying the Moon.
