Abstract
Nowadays less and less students choose science as their favorite subjects. The main reason is probably lack of interesting and not too difficult methods and exercises which would allow them to be in touch with modern ideas of chemistry, physics and math. One of the ways to raise students' interest in science is to give them first-hand acquaintance with astronomy. In this paper we discuss experience from a high-school praxis gathered with a low-cost system based on a webcam and simple optics.
