I decided to try out the ZWO ASI183MC color camera on the Moon. I wanted to shoot the entire lunar disk, so I used the Celestron Omni XLT 127 telescope with the Antares f\6.3 reducer. The Moon was almost entirely in sight. Alas, even with an SSD drive, the maximum recording speed jumped from 10 to 15. In the height-cutting mode (3672×3672), we managed to draw 24 fps. Moreover, in Firecapture FPS was unstable – SharpCap provided stable 24 frames per second.
