    Lunar X Visible

    This should be a good one. Moon visible throughout and at 57 degrees at the start. X and V should be on show.
  2. Thought I would try my hand with another entry. Same old setup, Tak FC-100DC on AZGTi mount. Mark VI binoviewers, Zeiss 25mm orthos, x1.7 GPC and a AP Barcon with extension tube, guessing around x150, maybe less. iPhone 6 Plus handheld at the eyepiece using ProCam 4 to take the image and PS Express to crop and tweak it a little.

    Lunar X Visible

    A little lower than the April event but still should be a good one. Starting at 6.42pm at around 40 degrees altitude, finishing at 11.03pm at around 20 degrees.
  4. From the album: Starchasing

    The elusive Lunar X and V on the first quarter moon
  5. A reprocess of an image that I acquired on 1st June 2017 which was taken with my Esprit 150 and SX Trius 814 at prime focus. Although it was unplanned, I later discovered that I had also captured the so called X and V effects. I've attempted to boost the visibility of the V and X, along with the crater details and colours. The background sky level has also been raised. Again, I decided to process the image using my normal DSO processing routine. I'd appreciate any comments and criticism. Alan

    Lunar V 22_02_18

    From the album: Lunar

    Close up of area around around Lunar V feature, take on 22nd February, 2018. Camera ZWO ASI 120 MC attached to my Celestron Omni 120mm ‘frac.
  7. From the album: Lunar

    A semi-manual image of the 50% moon on 1st June 2017 taken with my Esprit 150. Whilst my DSO imaging set up was waiting for the moon to increase its angular distance from my selected DSO target, I took the opportunity to acquire some semi-manual images. I decided on an LRGB strategy since I wanted detail and colour contrast, so took 20 images per filter that where subsequently calibrated and stacked in RegiStar. I then followed my normal DSO processing workflow, sharpening the Lum component and boosting colour on the RGB composite. After I had finished processing the image, I noticed that, by accident, I had also managed to capture the so called Lunar X and V's - optical illusions that result in "X" or "V" shapes on the moon's surface. These are visible in transition region between the light and dark regions.
  8. From the album: Lunar

    A reprocess of the data from 1st June 2017 to highlight the V and X optical effects, colour and crater detail.
  9. until
    It's there, but you won't be able to see it, Moon below the horizon.
  10. Just messing with some more data I got from imaging the moon on Thursday 22nd February, and in the attached image below I’ve cropped in closer to the area around the Lunar V feauture, which shows quite a lot of detail with my early attempts with my ZWO ASI 120 MC camera, attached to my Celestron Omni 120mm f8.3 ‘frac. Processed through Registax, touched up in PS, and then on iPad Pro photo app Aviary also.
