Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)
If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.
Try a program called “sharpcap” it will run on windows 7 and is easier to use than the supplied philips software,from what you describe with the lunar shots I don’t think you are doing anything wrong. Try adjusting the exposure setting and set the frame rate to 10fps.
