Nicola is in the process of implementing Touptek cameras in AstroDMx Capture for all platforms. This implementation will be part of the next release of AstroDMx Capture.
We tested a TOUPCAM GPCMOS0200KPF camera fitted with an SVBONY UV/IR cut filter.
A skymax 127, modified for motor-focus, was mounted on a Celestron AVX mount. The TOUPCAM GPCMOS0200KPF was placed at the focus.
AstroDMx Capture for Linux was used to capture 5000-frame SER files in RGB24 of selected regions of the 92.2% waxing Moon. The imaging was done through high, thin clouds, which was far from ideal, but was adequate for these tests.

The best 25% of the images in the SER files were stacked in Autostakkert!, wavelet processed in Registax 6 and post-processed in the Gimp 2.10.

Craters Tycho, Schiller and Clavius are all very clear.
