Currently I use a small Canon Powershot S100 to make 1280x720 movies to stack with the freeware Autostakkert. I did a few tests of Venus, Saturn and Jupiter. This is still the beginning as I used the camera handheld behind the eyepiece. This should be improved.
The pictures of the Moon and Venus on 2014 Feb 26 are taken from Montagu, Western Cape, South Africa under excellent conditions. There was an occultation in Central and East Africa but the path just missed South Africa. These images are taken directly with the Canon EOS 6 and no stacking has taken place.
