How to install or hook up webcam or digital camera to your telescope in less than 5 minutes.  First look at the object in your telescope and focus on it.  Attach the webcam at the center of the telescope ocular lens.  Carefully tape the webcam to the telescope lens.   Locate the object through the webcam by moving slowly and with small incrementations of your your telescope body.  Adjust the image through the image software (contrast, exposure, etc).  The HD video that I recorded is the moon (half).  The moon images are amazing as you can see the crevices, valley and trench, hills and mountains.  Using the following materials:

1) Telescope
2) Webcam
3) Black Adhesive Tape


Enjoy!
