  5. I'm currently on my annual leave in Italy and the sky has been clear all day with no air turbulence. The telescope is out - of course - and I managed a session before dinner. I thought about sharing some photos taken with my phone and a couple of sketches.
  6. Hello stargazers, welcome. I had posted a picture yesterday of Uranus that had appeared to show its rings. I am using a Nexstar 4se, a 2x Barlow, and my Neximage Burst Color and capturing hundreds of photos and stacking them for my results. But still had me and others curious to if I were actually seeing the rings of Uranus or maybe just a glare of some sort. So I got back out there this morning, might I note I live in FL where the weather tends to stay hot so clear imaging during this time of year can be difficult, but not impossible as this image that I stacked 150 out of 300 images taken may show that statement holds true..............or I could just be mistaken the object in the image, but all in all I am feeling pretty confident that I have a decently clear image(stacked 150 images) of Uranus, its rings, and one of it's distant moons. It may be necessary to zoom in on my photo in order to see the moon it should be down and to the right of the planet a good distance in relation to the size of planet, I noticed that looking at Uranus in the photo helped bring the moon out just like stargazing in real-time. If anyone can better distinguish what I might have done right or wrong here any help would be appreciated (also forgot to change format save for my images so I am stuck with .bmp and setting it as a download, sorry for any inconvenience.) - - - J47(JAY) uranusringmoon.bmp
  7. Hi, i..m on Stargazers Lounge for long time ago, but now i have a new scope at last!!! The scope is a Skywatcher classic200p dobsonian, and i received it just one month ago. I.m really happy with it. For now, i.m using the stock eyepieces that come with the scope, a 25mm and 10mm super plossl 52. Yesterday i was received a Celestron Omni barlow, and that expands my magnification range. I posted some pics with my set. Congratulations to Stargazers lounge team, this is one of the best sites to learn about astronomy and equipment. Besf regards to everybody
  8. Hello Astronomers, On the 12th August, between 18:34 and 19:21 we had a occultation of Saturn by the moon. Of course I couldn't miss out of such a event so I took the day of work and setup my gear so that I could simultaneously capture the event as well as observe it. I had the SCT recording with the 618C while observing it in the dob... literally at high power it looked like a Saturn rise... massive lunar horizon filling the field of view with a big Saturn rising from under it, literally animated and visible slowly moving up... Looked amazing in the eyepiece... Photos or videos don't even come close to how good that looks live in the ep. I had my eye on the eyepiece in the 14" Skywatcher during the occultation and recorded the start and finish times as soon as I noticed them: Occultation Start 18:35.51 AEST Reappearance Start: 19:19.37 AEST Occultation Finish: 19:21.20 AEST I stuffed up the first part video, the covering of Saturn because I still had iCap set to capturing a maximum of 5000 frames left from my planetary imaging, so at 25fps I barely got a 3.5 minute video that stopped just before the actual occultation started... yes I was kicking my self... but at least I watched it... I wasn't going to do the same mistake on the re appearance on the other side... Sharing with you my photos and the video of the event... video is sped up to 400%. Clear Skies.

  9. Yesterday the Moon was low in the sky (in Scorpius), but he seeing was good and allowed magnifications up to 257x. Gassendi was the most prominent crater on the terminator. Here's a painting of the scene. The small Moon image (Stellarium) shows the location of Gassendi. Thank you for watching.
  10. 9 August was a good night for the Moon, so I studied the region from Ptolemaeus to Arzachel at 231x. Especially Alpertragius stood out, with its oversized central mound. It has been suggested that this is a volcanic feature. Herschel too was quite prominent. Thanks for watching.
  11. Recently I was given a 4 inch skywatcher Newt for which I made a table mount. I thought I would see what you could do imagining wise using this scope and a mono ASI220. 200 frames at full resolution, stacked in Autostakert, processed in Registax6 and given a final polish in Windows Photo. Conditions far from ideal with thin high cloud. I guess the previous owner will ask for it back...…..
  12. Yesterday's Moon with the straight wall. Rupes Recta (middle right) and the crater Pitatus (bottom left).

    Moon - Maurolycus

    Good seeing yesterday night. I spent some time on the Moon after it cleared the trees. Maurolycus captured my attention. Here's a painting of the scene:
  14. Sunday 30th June. NLCs started appearing as the skies cleared around 1.45am. Grabbed gear and headed off around 2.15am to the same location as last two sessions. Another 90 shots taken! Nikon D3 and Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, tripod mounted, cable release and mirror lock function. Lightly processed in Adobe Lightroom and (where required), stitched shots together in Photoshop CC2017 Taken from north Lichfield (Staffordshire). Clicking the pictures should open the hi-res images. Panoramic 1 - 7 shots. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 70mm, 2.56am. Note over in the far right the Pleiades. Panoramic 2 (Detail) - 4 shots. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 200mm, 3.01am 'The Saucepan and NLCs' - Single shot - (Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED). ISO 200, 2 sec, f/2.8, 24mm, 3.22am Started to pack away just as 'Mr Blackbird' started to sing - the dawn chorus broke.... then noticed a beautiful sight over in the East, switched back to the Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and added the TC-14EII 1.4x A 7% Crescent Moon. Single shot - ISO 200, 0.8 sec, f/4, 280mm, 3.28am Damian
  15. Dear all, yesterday evening, I started observing the moon and sketching crater Copernicus even 15min before sunset. The contrast on the moon wasn't perfect yet, but on the other hand the contrast on the sketching paper was better - no need for LED. Copernicus with its prominent ray system is wonderfully appearing on the full moon but this time I just concentrated on the 96km crater itself: Telescope: Celestron NexStar 127SLT Eyepiece: ExploreScientific 6.7mm/82° Date & TIme: June 12th, 2019 / 2130-2230 CEST Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany Technique: Koh-i-Noor chalk and charcoal pens on black sketching paper Size: appr. 30x30cm Looking in my filed skeches, I figured out that I have visited Copernicus five years ago. Here's a comparison of the two sketches showing some changes in technique: Clear skies! Achim
  16. Hi, since i started work on my observatory there hasn't been much time for AP, but since lunar photography is done in minutes i had a go yesterday. Gear: SW AZGTI with the Skymax127 and Sony A6300 and Baader Neodymium Moon & skyglow filter. 100 frames taken and 50% used to stack in autostackerd.
  17. c925 and 294mc pro bin 1 with ir/uv cut filter. 2 panel mosaic best 25% of 1,000 . Had to convert to jpeg as i keep getting an error 200 when trying to upload a larger file. ( 50+ mb ) clicky for full rez. and a few with the 385c camera with neodymium filter and mostly barlowed.
  18. Posting in this forum after too long! One of the first attempts at taking photos of the moon. All photos taken using skywatcher 90mm refractor with eq2 mount, Nikon DSLR and 2x Barlow here and there. No exposure. Basic editing in cellphone. Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!
  19. Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold. 7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little. Camera: Canon 600D Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount ISO: 800 Shutter speed: 1/400s
  20. Hi, included some images of April 12th. One image of Vallis Alpes, witht he large craters Arsitoteles and Eudoxus. Rima Hyginus, with lower in the image Triesnecker and Rimae Triesneckes to the right of it. The Apennines. A large mountain range. This is a two panel mosaic. and last byt not least a high res image of the lunar terminator from the Large crater Ptolemaeus all the way to the South pole. All images made using CFF CC300 f/20 and asi 174MM at prime focus. An Astronomik proplanet 807 filter was used to stabilize seeing. Enjoy the images, and feel free to share your toughts, comments etc. All images are also visible on my Astrobin page.
  21. Second time I undertake this kind of endeavour. Many many movies were shot. Over 300Gb of data. Stitching was done by hand. in adobe Photoshop. Equipment used: CFF 300f//20 cassegrain ASI174MM with Astronomik proplanet807 processing using Autostakkert, lynkeos and adobe photoshop. Image is a wee bit too large to add to post direclty. hence just the link. https://astrob.in/400728/0/ Make sure to check out at full res. enjoy. Wouter.
  22. Hello There are observations that will never be forgotten the photos are there to remind them. Friday, February 15 for the first time in months the weather forecast for astronomy are optimistic. The day before I had to work with the 807 infrared filter to fight turbulence but this time the IR 742 passes the turbulence is still there but at times there are details. It improves slowly then at 20:15 quickly the images become much better. I see the scree in Clavius D. Instantly I switch from the IR 742 to the red 610 to enjoy it. Sometimes it happens after passing a plane for a few seconds. It only lasted about twenty minutes the turbulence goes up as usual but I enjoyed it. Here are some pictures made in the evening. These are pretty much my best on these targets. I hope you like. Luc CATHALA Copernicus Pitatus Rutherfurd Clavius D Blancanus Clavius Tycho
  23. I'm not sure where all these odd names for the full moon are coming from? Apparently last night was a worm moon??? Regardless happy first day of spring everyone...here's my moon from last night Taken with an altair 72EDF Deluxe, GPCAM 290c and 0.5x reducer.
  24. I've been finding my way slowly around the constellations now for a couple of years, to some extent ☺, however with clear skies becoming rarer and when clear there is usually a bright moon, I'm taking more of an interest in our satellite; but surprisingly I know little of what to look for. Can you good folks give me some suggestions as to how to get the most out of moon viewing, please note I'm not into astrophotography. Think my best scope might be my 127mm Mak but also looking for guidance on best set up, eyepieces, magnification etc
  25. Single shot using Atik 4120EX OSC camera and TS 65Q on Mesu 200. 1 x 0.01s It was just there Thanks for looking Dave.
