Astronomy and grabbing images.

  Giantsquid 23:19 10 Aug 2003

Hello, Long winded I realise,

Thinking of returning to my old hobby of Astronomy,
many years ago after much deliberation I went and bought a good quality Scope from the USA, all went well until I realised that the English weather is unique in that you could only use it 3 night a year as the air quality in the UK is s**t and that frostbite is your real enemy, this was before the day's of Computers.
Thesedays you can run such a Telescope in the warmth of your study by using a RS232 cable directly to your PC and view the results real time whilst sipping your glenwhatever with no danger of said blackening of the toes. My question, is it possible to save 'grab' the image seen on the screen ? and of course print it later, the Moon is my target as most of the other deep sky images are too faint to record, many thanks,

You can "grab" the image by pressing the Prt Scr key on your keyboard - this prints the image (screen) to the clipboard. From there you simply need to open an imaging programme (even Word will do it) and paste the captured image
