5X barlow for xbox cam
« on: August 17, 2012, 11:30:52 PM »
Would a 5x barlow be useable with a xbox 360 web cam in my 200pds?
Funk it, close enough ;D

Would be a nightmare to get the on image on the chip with a 5x.

In theory, yes it would be fine Rab..... Your scope is F5, so x5 would be F25, which is somewhere near what we require for planetary imaging with a webcam.

Yes, but, no pain no gain as they say, lol....... Would be a bit tricky, but worth it in the end image me thinks.

Aye, got back yesterday.
Was asking about the barlows as telescope house are doing a deal for a 2.5x and 5x for 55. Factor in the 10% discount and the fact that my missus is buying me some bins at the same time and I'm tempted.
Might even sell my Tal 2x barlow to help offset the cost. I notice theyre not available again atm so might stick it on fleabay and try get a decent price for it.
The barlows will mainly be used with webcams as I think I'm going to try and increase my ep's so I can have enough so's not to need a balrow.
(How bad is my grammar?)
And yes Grant, you may borrow  ;)
Funk it, close enough ;D
