  10. Earthshine

    I have always wanted to do this, I am guessing a layers function with PS? Well done!!
  11. Good day fellow SGL members! I went out for a brief imaging session to capture this tiny moon phase. A personal lowest illumination capture to date- a mere 15%! Best 20% of 6836 frames FC, AS!3, Fitswork, Gimp Anyways, cheers from Canada. Thanks for looking and clear skies!
  12. Full disk 99% illumination 03/30/18

    Using FITSWORK. A bit more natural at full resolution.
  13. Full disk 99% illumination 03/30/18

    No. I am starting to think I should insure my scopes just in case. This was a freak accident after a long day though. I was rushing when it was cold. A bit hung over all day and spent a long day at the gf's family place. After a visual and imaging session with 3 scopes on the moon, I didn't zip up a tripod bag containing the Vixen 81S scope, and when I grabbed three bags at a time while packing up, I missed a handle for that particular bag. As I was speed walking , I heard a crash and realized everyone's worse fear - I broke my favourite refractor, and wasted a lot of money.
  14. Good day fellow SGL members, I was out last night imaging the moon. This imaging run turned out fairly good, which in turn, sort of makes up for the fact I ruined a brand new refractor by accidentally dropping it on concrete and shattering the objective of my contrasty Vixen 81S. Very disappointed as it was my favorite visual scope, but it was late and all I can do is learn from my mistake. Anyways, 3 min vid with FC, AS!3, RS6, Gimp
  15. Astronomical Sketches

    These sketches are works of art!!! Well done, you're very talented indeed.
