Eclipse 2019

Post by BlackWikkett » Wed Jan 23, 2019 1:59 am

Hi All

My first lunar Eclipse that I've imaged. Used the RC6 with ASI294 and AP CCDT67 reducer. Also had a Cannon T5i (700D) piggy back on the RC for wide field view. Just posting a few images here you can follow links to the albums if so inclined.

RC6 images: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmzEvnku

DSLR images: https://flic.kr/s/aHskMCeu7R

The RC images captured in SharpCap with a master flat. Each image was 200 x 4.5 ms +/- with 0 gain and offset. Stacked CR2 (raw) images in AutoStakker 3. RegiStax 6 for wavelet sharpening. Photoshop for image rotation and saving as PNG file.

Nice wide field on the DSLR with the moon almost at maximum eclipse just frame right above the Beehive Cluster

Thanks guys!

We had a wonderful night on NSN, 6 broadcasts going from all across the US as far west as Hawaii. Only thing I missed was the impact due to not capturing a run at the time.
