    Default CCD for Planets

    But I thought software such as AVIEdit allowed you to skip using
    compression; at least it's an option, and since I don't think the camera
    itself transmits in compressed mode as a matter of course, this should
    solve the problem of compression. Of course, the computer has to
    be fast enough to handle the data flow.

    Never be afraid of trying something new for the love of it.

    USB isn't fast enough to deal with uncompressed video at full frame rates. I
    think some cheap cameras always compress the data, but better cameras only seem
    to compress to the degree necessary to move the data. That's why you want to
    stick to just capturing a few frames per second. The AVIs I get with my Quickcam
    and K3CCD are obviously not compressed very much, because the file sizes are
    close to what you would expect for X x Y x Count.
