Dashcam as Planetary Camera

I repurposed my old dash camera (Polaroid N302) as a planetary camera.

The lens was removed and replaced with a webcam-to-telescope adapter and then mounted on to a 4 in diameter, 900 mm focal length Sky-Watcher 100ED telescope on a tracking mount.

A 2X Barlow was used to further magnify the image (this video shows 1800 mm effective focal length). Jupiter’s could bands are visible in this video (1080P).
