    Mars, September 2018

    No friend Reggie, it's just techniques I've developed over time to dodge adversity. Also let's not forget that a C14 is a planetary killer telescope!

    Although it is diminishing the eyes still seen of the to catch something. The biggest problem is that the photos are made very early when he is in zenith, but this is at 7:30 PM, so the movement on the freeway that passes 100 meters from mine along with the subway's peak time, capture due to the intense vibration it causes on the floor and the assembly is transmitted.

    Still finding films that were forgotten with the rush amid the exhibitions of orchids and constant trips to São Paulo.

    Killing the longing!

    With the show that the planets gave this year I even left my poor Moon aside, but killing a little the longing after seeing a photo of these I could not stop publishing. Stadius and Eratosthenes should have been two extremely similar craters. Both are roughly the same size (60km and 70km). What sets them apart is just their age, Stadius is from the Imbriam period and was formed about 3.8 billion years ago. Etosthenes is a much younger crater, belonging to the eratosthenian period and must have formed between 1.5 and 2 billion years. Stadius was submerged by magma rivers that flowed on the lunar surface and probably covered hundreds or thousands of craters that today are only supposed to have existed. It is a ghost crater, but still well defined, as there are some extremely subtle craters that can only be seen at very low lighting angles, such as the one I discovered above the Aristharcus Plateau (please see: http://astroavani.no .comunidades.net / reporting-the-discovery-a-new-crater-ghost). Eratosthenes is a typical Copernicus style crater, and because it is older it does not have a proper ray system but is covered by the rays of Copernicus, has a well-defined circular inner wall border with numerous terraces, prominent central mountain peaks, uneven floor, and a outer wall of ejected material. In short, two craters that must have been almost the same show themselves completely different because of the irreversible passage of time.

    Saturn of August

    Yes, the IR Pass filter nicely highlights the hexagon and your eye!

    Saturn of August

    Still reviewing the unprocessed movies that I make in the rush through work, sometimes I find real jewelry. This Saturn shows very well several characteristics of the ring senhou, and what I like immensely, is the comparison between the photo in the visible wave band (RGB) and the infrared photo 685 nanometers. Unbelievable to see how the polar hexagon and its eye stand out in the infrared, although they are present tenuously in the color photo, it is in the infrared that it gains evidence and perfectly shows its hexagonal form. https://www.astrobin.com/full/368766/0/?nc=user

    Article Brian Ventrudo

    For those who have interest follows the last post of colleague Brian Ventrudo on planetary oppositions in the year 2018. Of breaking contains excellent photos that deserve to be viewed: https://astronomyconnect.com/forums/articles/image-round-up-planetary-oppositions-of-2018.80?utm_source=equinox-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=the-equinox-september-2018

    A Forgotten Jupiter!

    In the midst of the rush of professional commitments this Jupiter went unnoticed. Now reviewing the files sometimes finds good forgotten images. Quite a lot of details visible in a photo that did not seem to work, but when you started using the wavelets in Registax 6 the details popped up and surprised. https://www.astrobin.com/full/366735/0/?nc=user

    My Best Saturn of August

    Thanks for comments!

    My Best Saturn of August

    This was probably the best Saturn of the year and also the last one before dedicating myself to the professional appointments and travels that prevented me from taking photos as I have in recent weeks. There are many visible details and each wavelength evolves better than others, for example, with the IR 685 filter the polar hexagon and its central eye stand out perfectly. With the L filter, the tracks on the planet give a real show. For anyone to complain about both the Cassini division and Encke's division are easily visible and the only thing else is because of the Crepe ring that was practically missing. I could have highlighted it better but opted for a higher contrast rendering to evidence other details that were quoted above. https://www.astrobin.com/full/366546/0/?nc=user

    And Mars is moving away!

    Friend Dave! I think it's all about altitude. I can hardly get anything good if the planet is below 65 °.

    And Mars is moving away!

    I've been correcting a stacking artifact that existed in a straight line coming out exactly at 9 am!

    And Mars is moving away!

    After the opposition the diameter diameter display is quite fast as well as the phase increase. In this photo we can see Olympus Mons as an orange spot near 01:00 hs and at exactly 9:00 there is a clear line that at first I thought it was a defect in the photograph but then when I went to check I realized it was Aeolis Mensae which has a network of Valleys in that location. It is interesting to note how some formations changed their appearance due to the storm. https://www.astrobin.com/364789/0/?nc=user

    Mars, a brief GIF

    Thank you my friend!
