Lunar images

Recommended Posts

Today the seeing was much better and I've managed to get some good Moon images with the two tested cameras. I used C11 and a red longpass filter.

Tucsen Discovery M15 "sCMOS", C11 + f/6.3 reducer:

Excellent results... surprised you haven't had any feedback until now. :huh:

There's a marked difference in the two cameras - the Tucsen seems to produce a more contrasty image, or was that down to processing?

Hope you don't mind, I couldn't resist chuckin' them into ICE :grin: :

Allan, just want to clarify - the two images I posted are riklaunim's images tiled together in Microsoft's ICE program. They're all his (her?) work. :)

You need aperture, and camera imaging at around half of scope resolution to avoid airy pattern from spoiling images. Also a mono camera and infrared passing or infrared+vis filter helps a lot (limits atmospheric dispersion and bad seeing).
