Capture codecs for Solar System Imaging

Until the last few days I’ve not been aware that the various codecs offered for capture by my SPC900 webcam (and others) are not equal and some retain more data than others. Once aware of the issue I did a bit of hunting around and found that the YUY2 codec is supposed to be the best for capture. I was using I420, so from now on I shall switch. I’ve already captured some Mars images this weekend. They’re linked from the Solar System Images menu item above.
