First color Moon


Recommended Posts

My first try out at processing a color moon image (produced from a stacked image taken afocally from an AVI with a small digital camera and through my Tasco scope)

From other images I've seen, I think the colors have come out quite well but as this is the first time I've tried this so I cant be sure. Comments welcome

      First time i have ever seen this recorded in calcium light, and luckily I am the first person to image it!   If you can find it anywhere else, please let me know.
      I have monitored solar eruptions for 20 years,  you see this with hydrogen alpha regularly;  and I am very confident when i say that i am the first amateur to ever record this.        
      Too bad i was not imaging in high res, this would have been a textbook class capture..

      So ... I've been playing peek a boo with the moon this morning as I found there was a possibility of it being visible in the  lovely bits of blue morning sky .... and it was... periodically But then found I had no idea what my camera settings ought to be for daylight shots once i'd got myself setup on my scope..😂
      Can someone give me some pointers? Pleasey 🤩
      I'm using Backyard nikon on my laptop
      OK I had a bit of (non moon ) blue sky to play with so I tried to work it out for myself.  The attached photo is of what I THINK is going to be getting something useful when/if the moon comes back  from its hiding place.. So the settings were Shutter 1/1600, Aperture f14, ISO 1600...  To my untrained eye that looks to be a reasonable starting place.. but 
      What do you think?
      Is this me being on the right track ?🤔
      I've saved these settings in the app to recall them next the moon pops up in daylight  (maybe tomoz)
      Would you believe there's a whole window full of blue sky -just where the moon isn't...  Where the moon is is just a white out of bulbous spoil sports..😤 - I bet you would believe it!🤣
