Couple a Celestron C9 and an 8-bit black and white Quickcam and what do you get?
Little low resolution images. But, boy what fun.
Here's what a $29.95 B&W ccd camera will do with a 9 inch SCT.
But wait there's more. Not only is the camera an 8-bit ccd chip, but, the computer was a 486/25 black and white portable. Talk about pushing the performance curve! Notice the bands on Jupiter and separation in Saturn's rings.
