The Moon, w/c 3rd December

Post by NeilG » Mon Dec 09, 2019 10:40 am

At last - a couple of clearish evenings - dodging a bit of cloud with good transparency but average seeing.

'First light' with this setup. I usually do Lunar with my C11, but I've mothballed that this winter as there are no planets in view given my horizons. so I'm trying some Lunar work with my 127mm f7.5 Apo, an x2 tele-extender and the ASI290.

All images are the best 25% of 10000 frames processed in PiPP, Autostakkert and Registax (for wavelets). click on the image for full size version.

In no particular order:-

Scopes: Celestron C11, 102SLT , Ascension 127mm Apo, Opticstar 152mm Mak, Ascension 80mm Apo
Mounts: EQ8, EQ5 Pro, Nexstar SLT
Imaging: ASI1600MM-Cool, ASI290MM, ASI224MC, Quark, QHY5L-II-M,
Opticstar 82 eyepieces, lots of other stuff

Very good Neil. The moon is always good value when there is intermittent cloud & 10,000 frames increases the probability of a decent image.

With my recent captures, I have stacked using Resample 2.0x which has improved some images.
