  1. Hi, since i started wordk 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. National Geographic 90/1250 maksutov is my telescope and thanks for all the replies and support of my previous post it helped me alot and i figured out how to see the moon for example in beautiful quality but there's the problem i have. I can only see good views and a sharp sight of the moon but that's about it. Do i need a better lens that can zoom even more out or is this the limit of my telescope? Please let me know if you know a solution to this.
  12. Few Moon pictures,maybe too rich color,but like it..

  15. Hi all, First post on here looking for some telescope buying advise. I've searched and seen some similar topics which have been very useful but thought i'd summarise and see what the experts think. I'm looking at getting myself and my girlfriend a telescope as an anniversary gift. She's not scientifically minded at all but she really likes the aesthetic of the moon. The house is filled with 3D printed moon lamps, jewelry, cushion covers etc.. We're about to move into a new house in Forest Hill in SE London and the new house has a really large garden backing onto more gardens so quite sheltered from all street lights. We both said to eachother a telescope might be a nice thing to have in the new house and something we can enjoy together in the new garden. I've got a budget of up to £200 but by no means want to spend that much if I'm paying for features we don't need or will use. I've got some experience with a reflector scope that was my brothers. He got it years ago and we both obsessed over it for about a month and then once we'd seen the big planets and a few blurry distant clusters we got bored and it never got touched again. That was a 130mm DIA reflector (skywatcher I think). After the initial excitement, my overriding feeling towards it was it was not worth the faff! This was in dark Northumberland as well, not London. I've tried to explain this to my girlfriend when we've talked about it and said if we don't want the faff we might have to invest in a Go to electric telescope. The logic being if its quicker and easier to see stuff, we'll use it more. I did get then quite excited reading reviews and trying to find second-hand goto scopes and it seems like something in my budget (or slightly pushed budget) is something like a Celestron SLT 127. (have seen second hand ones go for £250). However having then done a bit of reading on here I think i've worked out that those cheaper Go-to's are still not that quick and simple to use, ultimately i'm I'm still only going to see fairly blurry planets and smudges of deep space clusters. I honestly don't think the girlfriend will be impressed and I'll probably get bored after a while too. So I think I've come to the conclusion that I want to get a much smaller refractor that would be much more accessible for viewing the moon and would allow us to see a smudgy Saturn and Jupiter on clear nights. A smartphone camera holder would be a bonus too as it adds a simple feature that would keep us entertained for longer. Do you think that's a fair approach or am I being a little too pessimistic about what I'm going to see? If so then what scopes could anyone recommend? Stepping down to a slightly lower budget there are so many more options and it's a bit bewildering. Thanks
  16. Effectively my first light on this sight. Need to concentrate on the focusing but your comments would be much appreciated Moon framed.bmp
  17. Hi folks, Just wanted to share my bloodmoon experience with you in this blog. It was quite challenging, ice on my balcony, camera falling out of telescopes and tracking challenges. But in the end it was a wonderful experience, you can read it here: https://www.astroforum.space/blog/my-first-bloodmoon-experience and i've included a (gittery) timelapse + final image. Please let me know what you think, should I keep the stuff that goes bananas for myself or share it with you folks? Clear skies!
  18. I'm a keen moon observer (and new here), primarily using 15x50 Canon image-stabilized binoculars, but also an old 4-inch 'scope that recently broke. I want to take things to the next level and invest in a 'scope powerful enough to study lunar features as the terminator creeps, including craters, mountain ranges, and perhaps even the lunar X, etc. It would be great to have the option of photography in future if that doesn't hugely change what I should buy, but observing is by far my primary goal here. Any suggestions please? Budget is £1.5k+. Thanks! Jamie
  19. A couple images I was able to take with my iPhone and my Dobsonian XT8. using the Camera +2 app Anyone know any other good phone apps? ?
  20. Another image of the Moon, Venus & Spica yesterday morning. Pentax K5 / PENTAX-DA 12-24mm F4 ED AL [IF] lens @24mm / f9 / iso 1600 / 5 sec exp.

  22. Managed to get a few pics of the moon holding my phone up to the eyepiece and then *attempted* to edit them. I done the editing with a free app I found, Jus not sure if I've over done it. There didnt seem to be much detail at first. I'm quite happy with the outcome considering my kit is very basic. Hoping to try some other eyepieces next time Anyway heres what I think was the best one...
  23. Got a pretty serviceable couple of mosaics the other night of Plato and Copernicus. Its been almost 5 months and one nerve-wracking optics clean since I last imaged anything. Felt good being back outside again. Both mosaics were shot through a red filter using my 8 inch SCT and DBK camera. 12 pane mosaic of Plato and Vallis Alpes 6 pane mosaic of Copernicus
  24. hi all stuck the barlow and dmk into the 9.25 here the great results (rude of me to say when there loads of great images of the moon and craters on sgl) i did get some great vids to stack we have had a couple a great night jupiter tonight if this good clear skys holds 1000 caputured @15fps average 300 stacked registax 5 light edit ps6
  25. bit more from a frosty last night c gem pier in obsy sct 9.25 hd 720* logitech some colds hands and i did some other stuff will sort later but for now enjoy these close ups sit at least 3 feet away from yor monitor please to get the full beauty of the moon pat
