  1. In between Jupiter I gave the moon another go last Saturday. Haven't really done a lot of moon work. Mine's not in the same league as some of the other's on here - those big mosaics must take ages! Anyway here's the moon from the 11 Jan in the day from Stratford-Upon-Avon whilst I was out for a walk with my superzoom bridge camera. At night And my first close up attempt Rob
  2. Here's my latest lunar mosaic from the morning of 6th September. 67 panes shot through a red filter between 12.50 and 2.30am. Followed by several hours of processing and manually stitching together using photoshop. I'm still knackered two days later. If the picture takes ages to load or you feel brave enough to view it full size (be warned, its massive) click here: http://www.flickr.co...in/photostream/
  3. Canon 7D and 100-400mm lens @ 275mm 1/500@f8 iso200. 2.6 degrees separation between the Moon and Jupiter. The moon is on the right
  4. 3rd of July 2017 / 21h30 UTC+01:00 / Stargazing Conditions: 80% After much reading and hyping myself so much, I was pretty stunned by the early notification on my phone that yesterday night could potentially be a good evening with good seeing. So I went home after work (with my phone still showing 80% of potential seeing), sat on my desk and prepared myself. I chose to watch the Moon, since I never really observed it, Jupiter, Saturn and search for the Sombrero Galaxy! Last week I searched for a few good atlases and stumbled unto the Interstellarum Deep Sky Atlas. A promising atlas which should arrive this week, but still would let me be without a field atlas, since it is a desk edition... After cramming in the forums I mainly found three downloadable recommendations: 1) The Deep-Sky Atlas 2) Deep-Sky Hunter Atlas 3) TriAtlas I downloaded all of them and browsed through them, noticing that only the Deep-Sky Hunter Atlas exists in a field edition. I printed the normal Version on A3 paper to look if it fits the need and, hell yeah, I really like it so far!! Only downside (for me) at the moment, is that the constellations are in black lines in contrary to the Deep-Sky Atlas. So I think I'll print both of them, laminate them and take them with me on my sessions. (I will have to inverse the colors on the Deep-Sky Atlas though) To round everything up, I figured that I'll need a software too, to plan my sessions a little better and just give me the right impressions on where I will have to search in the sky. A while back I downloaded Stellarum, which seemed to be a great free app, but it simply kept crashing on my laptop... Searching for alternatives I found SkySafari 5 and Starry Night 7. Given the prices of Starry Night 7 and the fact that it isn't to be found on the AppStore, I went ahead and downloaded SkySafari 5 Pro. It is a beautifully simple app which does the job just fine and gives me the needed input to satisfy my thirst for knowledge (at least for now). At this point, I was wondering if someone knows if Starry Night 7 was up-gradable? So let's say I buy the Enthusiast Edition and wanted to up-grade to the Pro or even Pro-Plus version one day. Do I have to buy the App entirely new or does it give the opportunity to up-grade for a few bucks to the next edition? Enough rambling an off to my stargazing site! I arrived well early before sunset, which gave me the opportunity to once check again, if my finderscope was well aligned with the 'scope. It also gave me the chance to let my 'scope acclimatize the same way as last time and so I sat back and waited a little until the moon gained a little on contrast as the sun was setting. The Moon The Moon, being a waxing gibbous, shone bright in the slightly dark blue night sky with literally NO clouds in the sky. I put my 15mm BTS eyepiece in and looked at the beautiful moonscape. It is defiantly the first time I've seen the Moon so up-close and I was in awe by it. I never imagined that it could be so nice to look at all these craters and I began to wonder where they all came from. It is simply a battlefield of craters and each and everyone has its own story to tell... after a good 30 minutes of switching between the 8mm and 15mm eyepiece and lots of "ohs" and "wows", I figured I could try and photograph the Moon with my phone through the eyepiece... what seemed to be a really stupid idea at first turned out to be a really great shot (I think?)! (very little photoshop-magic to increase contrast and sharpness) Jupiter Next on that nights list was Jupiter. I remembered the image last time I looked at it and I was thrilled to already clearly identify Europa from Io through the finderscope. I managed to see Callisto, Ganymede, Europa and Io. I think that Jupiter itself was a little less contrasty as last time BUT I think I could make out the Red Spot which really made me happy! I was so thrilled by the view I even can't write down how I felt... I switched from 15mm to the 8mm eyepiece and focused in... I kept focusing and focusing and focusing but nothing happened... As I looked up in the sky I was shocked... the beautiful cloudless sky had turned into a thick carpet of Cumulus Cumulonimbus... I immediately looked at the horizon on my right to see if there was a slight possibility of clear sky but the enemy had invaded the sky... To make matters even worse at that moment, I met my locations' neighbor, which is no other company then Arcelor Mittal... The sky with the clouds lit up in a bright orange from the molten metal... At that moment I knew it was over for that night... Thanks for reading Abe

    Tycho Rays

    From the album: Edge 800 & 1100 HD

    A shot of Tycho and an exaggerated partial view of the ray system that surrounds this young formation (you can see the lines of ejecta material which form the rays moving away radially from the crater). This image was captured on the 28th December at 19:12:57 and comprised of a single capture of 2063 frames, of which only 236 were used in the stack. It was captured using a ZWO174mm camera (with a 642IRBP filter), and a televue x2 barlow). This was mounted on a Celestron Edge1100HD, in turn held on a Celestron CGEMDX mount. It was captured using OAcapture, stacked in Autostakkert2, Sharpened in Registax6 and finished in Photoshop.
  7. From the album: Lunar and Planetary Images

    Taken using Williams Optics FLT-110 refractor and Imaging Source DMK21AU04.AS Monochrome CCD. Video stacked in RegiStax6. Image shows the well known Tycho Crater which has a diameter of 102km and was named after the Danish Astronomer Tycho Brahe. The crater is surrounded by a distinctive ray system forming long spokes that reach as long as 1,500km.

    97% Moon in H alpha

    From the album: Lunar

    Believe it or not this is only my second lunar image.......I had just performed a software upgrade with MaximDL and was checking to see everything was OK. At the time a nearly full moon was present so I decided to take a few subs. Since ACP does not support lunar capture (it cannot change the tracking rate to lunar) I had to do a semi manual acquisition using ACP to perform the autofocusing. I selected my 3nm Ha filter since I thought it would give more contrast compared to the Lum. I took 20 subs each of 0.1s and stacked then in Registar. I then post processed in Pixinsight and PS - not sure if I have sharpened this too much, time will tell.

  13. From the album: First Attempts

    This is my first go at a stack of photos. Using my Canon EOS 350D, I took 23 exposures at 1/100 second 1600 ISO via my Celestron 130EQ and a 2x Barlow. I didn't use the motor drive, so just let RegiStax 6 do its job without trying to alter any of the defaults. As a first go, I have to say I'm quite satisfied with the result. I took other images at different exposure times and ISO, but this was the first attempt at stacking!!

    Moon 12/03/2014

    From the album: Stargazing

    © Dave France

  15. Another early morning conjunction, the Moon will be 15 degrees above the horizon at 5am, with Saturn 4 degrees away and Mars 2.5 degrees from Saturn. A lovely binocular or naked eye sight.
  16. Visible for much of the night until around 4.15am, the closest approach is at around 2.15am when the 76% illuminated Moon will be 2 degrees 36" away from M44, the Beehive Cluster. Best seen in binoculars or a wide field scope.
  17. Another tricky one, being low in the sky just before dawn. At 5am the Moon will be at around 10 degrees altitude, with Saturn close at just over 2 degrees away. Best seen with the naked eye or binoculars

    Half Moon

    From the album: Astro Collection

    This photo was taken briefly before the clouds rolled in and the heavens opened - frantically making me gather all my gear and run indoors (not the easiest of things to do with a Meade LX90 8" SCT)!
