With a Skymax 127 Maksutov Cassegrain telescope and a 0.5 focal reducer, this image of The trapezium region of the Orion nebula was obtained. Astrovideo was used to sum 50 integrated frames and dark-frame correction was used.

With a x3 Televue Barlow and the frame integration turned off, Saturn was imaged and captured to DVD. Then 5000 frame AVI was captured from the DVD playback and was used to synthsise the above Image.

With a x3 Barlow and a x1.6 focal extender lens captured a larger image of Saturn, showing the versatility of this camera.
