  1. From the album: Lunar

  2. From the album: Moon

    Post-processed in-phone using the Photoshop App. I quite like the details but the noise is pretty bad.

    moon 29/11/12

    From the album: Moon

    Moon taken on my iPhone afocally and hand held to Heritage 130P with Vixen NPL 10mm EP.
  4. After what seemed like eons, I had a slight break in the clouds for an while just after the France v Albania footie match which revealed the moon. So, after a little observation I decided I'd try a hand again at getting a shot of it with my IPhone 6+ through the eyepiece. Took quite a few shots, so going to work on some of the images, but for now I thought this one came out pretty well. Taken through my ST120 frac, with my 17mm Vixen LV EP. Originally with a blue filter to take some of the glare out of the moon, but tweaked on my IPad to show some of the seas better, so it turned out black and white instead.
  5. Hello, Probably should not post this, as not really that great, but wanted to share an attempt at M13 using Afocal photography. I have been messing around with this and my starting equipment for quite a while, and have had some nice pics of the Moon and Jupiter, yet last night I got a bit wound up with Mars, so thought I would point at M13 and see what happened... Was not really expecting much to be honest, but was quite surprised. the shot below is a single 2.5 second exposure (ISO1600) using a Sony Cybershot in a Baader digiscoping bracket, through a TAL 25mm Plossl in a TAL 100RS on a TAL GEM EQ (read wooden manual tripod and mount). Now I know it has star trails, but was quite taken with it. I am saving for my planetary imaging rig......but you never know...this DSO stuff is quite interesting... Thanks for looking anyway.
  6. A couple of smaller shots. Thanks for looking.
