Thank you for supporting this wiki project
This is a 27-pane mosaic through Meade Lightbridge 16 inch dobsonian telescope and barlow 2x lens. Under good seeing atmospheric conditions these big scopes can perform under full potential giving high resolution images of the Moon.

Nice pictures. I've only just stterad astronomy as a hobby, with an Orion XT10i Intelliscope. Its a Newtonian Reflector on a Dobsonian base, which I am starting to discover makes astrophotography a little difficult since it does not have motors to enable equatorial tracking. Still I am able to take some photos and use K3CCDTools to take AVI's and Registax to stack the frames and improve the photos. They are not bad results, but your photos of Mars and Jupiter are very nice, some good detail in Mars particularly, which I understand can be a bit difficult to photograph. I too use a webcam, a Phillips SPC900NC which is a similar spec and sensitivity to your Toucam, except I think mine allows the modification for the Steve Chambers long exposure mod to be made even easier, due to a redesign of the circuit board which brings the required connections away from the chips which are so tiny it makes soldering to them difficult on the Toucam. I have yet to make the SC LX mod, but I chose this webcam because of the ease of doing it.

You're correct, I've not pushraced a telescope yet but I've got a good interest in studying about our solar system. Optics are the major feature of the telescope so yeah, a lot of people would have bought it for fun and may want to sell it now and many people with good interest in astronomy would not want to sell it.
