  1. I had a quick session with my new to me 20x80 Opticron, Japanese made binos tonight. I have them tripod mounted using a trigger grip ball head which works very well. Lovely views of M42, trapezium split nicely and surprisingly a gentle green tint to the nebula. Anyway, the crescent moon was also looking lovely with prominent earthshine. There was a fair amount of CA as is to be expected, but still a nice sharp view along the terminator. Three shots here, all hand held at the binos. I made sure I focused the binos using my glasses first, otherwise the images are obviously out of focus! First one was exposed for the earthshine, the second is converted to mono to get rid of the CA and the third is exposed for the terminator. All tweaked on the phone using PS Express. Quite pleased with the results, given the inappropriateness for imaging of the kit used ?
  2. A beautiful sight greeted me as I walked through the door on the way to work this morning. The Moon was fairly low and illuminated by earthshine. I considered grabbing my 'scope and camera, but didn't have enough time. I wonder how long I'll have to wait before I get another chance at that shot and so can tick L2 off on my Lunar 100 spreadsheet!
  3. Just thought I would post these single frame shots of the Moon with Earthshine. I took them whilst I was waiting to see if I could catch a glimps of C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS), but no luck! Taken with a Canon 1100D on a Slick 88 camera tripod. Settings: 70mm & 210mm focal lengths, F/4, 2/5", 400 ISO. I believe the comet should have been directly below the Moon by about 5-7 degs, but there was some cloud along the horizon with haze above that, which I think is where the comet was!
  4. ear all yesterday evening, I did a small chalk/charcoal sketch of the moon with the 3" MiniDob. I hope you like it. Telescope: Skywatcher Heritage 76/300 Eyepiece: Skywatcher UWA 5mm/58° Date & Time: April 29th, 2130-2200 CEST Location: home, Dusseldorf region, Germany Technique: chalk and charcoal pens on black sketching paper Size: 4" in diameter Clear skies!
