AstroVideo  Popular
AstroVideo uses any Windows-compatible video capture device to create an effect similar to long exposure photography, by automatically integrating a large number of video frames. Astrovideo captures and superimposes hundreds of video frames to acheive far greater sensitivity than is normally possible with a low-cost video camera. AstroVideo has provision for assembling an even greater effective exposure time by co-adding a number of multi-frame images. Astrovideo can automatically align the images, even if the telescope tracking is not perfect.
