  1. Hi CraigT82. Yes this is the ASI 290mm (and not 270) which was a typo which I have corrected above. Thanks for noticing and thanks for the comments.
  2. The conditions on this evening were good and allowed me to put the C11 and ASI270mm through their paces. The series of images below I believe are my highest resolution images of these features so far and I am really pleased with how the scope and the ASI camera are performing. The original scale images do really show a great deal of detail that is lost somewhat in the compressed JPG images shown here. All of the images here are the result of multiple images stitched using the MS ICE panoramic application. Details for each image as follows, All images taken with Celestron C11 wi
  3. MONTES ALPES and VALLIS ALPES 6 images stitched in this montage which is part of a larger 16 pane panorama. The 700 m wide rille can be made out running along the floor of Vallis Alpes. Celestron C11 with ASI290mm camera, 2.5x Powermate and Baader IR pass (685nm) filter.
  4. MONTES ALPES and PLATO Panoramic image created by stitching 16 individual image panes together in the original 50" x 22" montage. Celestron C11 with ASI290mm camera, 2.5x Powermate and Baader IR pass (685nm) filter.
  5. Copernicus Lots of details resolved in the crater wall under good conditions. I particularly like the fact you can see a peak rising from the crater rim and casting a dome like shadow down the rim (5 o'clock position). Celestron C11 with ASI290mm camera, 2.5x Powermate and Baader IR pass (685nm) filter.
  6. Hadley Rille Along with other images from this night which the atmospherics were good I managed to capture this iconic area with a fair level of detail. In the original sized image the rille clearly has a shadowed side and an illuminated side where usually it has appeares as a dark line. St George crater can just be made out on the elbow of the rille near the Apollo 15 site as a small indentation in the mountain side. Celestron C11 with ASI290mm camera, 2.5x Powermate and Baader IR pass (685nm) filter.
  7. CLAVIUS One of my favourite lunar targets as it contains a lot of detail within the floor of the crater and the crater walls. I think this current image has the highest resolution I have yet managed to obtain of this crater since owning the C11 (August 2020) and can get lost looking around in the full size original image which is huge at 24" x19". Always up for a challenge I will see if I can push this scope further over the winter. Celestron C11 with ASI290mm camera, 2.5x Powermate and Baader IR pass (685nm) filter.
  8. Very nice captures. I have had one of these scopes since the early 90's and visually it is still the best scope I have owned. Even better than the C8 Edge HD and C11 I have. Very well made and something rather special about the mirror. I have retired it now as it was not on a driven mount (old Fuller EQ mount) but you have yours driven so may look into resurrecting. It is a best of a scope, I would be interested to see how you have mounted yours on the mount. Both lovely images and a great deal of detail on Mars.
  9. Two images of Mars from the 22nd November showing the Solis Planum and Vales Marineris region. There is dust all over this region making it quite milky in appearance and is especially obvious along the preceding limb on the first image. Only the region around the pole seems to be clear of dust at this time. The Tharsis region is not overly obvious at the moment either so maybe shrouded in dust as well. Olympus Mons can just be made out on the first image appearing from the night side of the planet. The dust seems to clear further round the globe as seen in the second image which is less
  10. That is definitely the Elysium region which is north of Mare Cimmerium, the prominent dark region on the image. Olympus is at a similar latitude but around the planet a little further north of Daedalia Planum and the Tharsis volcanoes.
  11. Image of Theophilus (right), Cyrillus (middle) and the rather worn crater Catharina. Taken back in May this year but only just got around to processing it recently. Celestron 8" Edge HD. x2.5 powermate, IR pass (685nm) and ASI120mm camera.

  13. 6 pane image panorama of the southern highlands showing the crater Moretus on the mid left half of the image. Celestron C11, x2.5 powermate, IR pass (685nm) filter and ASI290mm camera.
  14. That is a stunning image. You didn't borrow Hubble for a few hours did you?
  15. Wow, a great difference and improvement. I have gone around in circles with mine trying to get some consistency and am struggling. Jupiter is my usual planet for imaging and Mars really is a different animal when it comes to processing I find. Definitely worth taking the time to reprocess when you get the results you have, well done.
