Paper Abstract

Low cost CCD devices like webcams have great educational potential e.g. for amateur astronomy. Their low performance can be overcame to large extend by applying techniques described in this paper. Key elements in hte image processing are adding a large number of frames and shifting the frames with respect to each other, which turns systematic errors into statistical ones and averages them out.
