Moon : 2016/02/18 a little of magic on the crater Tycho

Recommended Posts


Conditions are very hard and I did not think having something of watchable with this film but the magic operated.

Some images of the movie, real speed is 120/s :



The ten better with  autostackker 2 :



And the result with my treatment in Registax 6 :



It is the first time that I can guess some fine grooves in this crater.



Clear sky.

It is amazing what modern stacking software can pull out of data. Really amazing results. I tend to use ImPPG for lunar postprocessing rather than RS6 wavelets. Might give RS6 another bash.

Hi Luc, that is amazing, from a wobbly shimmering wreck to an amazing image. Well done and thanks for showing your skill.

Wow--talk about a close up.  How did you get such clarity with such a close shot?

Wow - parler d'un gros plan. Comment avez-vous une telle clarté avec un tel plan rapproché? 


I have a 24" telescope and F/D 4,37. With the barlow 4 and IR 610 filter I take 2000 images in 20 s.

Clear skies.

Not a lot I can say, that has not been

already been said. A 24" scope. is a monster.

Velly,velly good. As the Chinese would say.:thumbsup:

Truly amazing results Luc, impressive.

What is the focal length on your behemoth 24" telescope Luc? If my calculations are correct, about 2600mm?

      Hi I went out this early evening to see if Saturn and Jupiter were observable but the clouds dominated this area.
      The Moon however was in a very clear area so I used my MeadeETX90 with a bino viewer with two 25mm eyepieces and spent some time viewing it.
      The views were really good as the Moon was in the first quarter which is when I feel is one of the best times to view it as it is not to bright.
      The shadows that were being cast were amazing but once again the clouds rolled in so until the next time??

      Hi all,
      I've been dabbling for about a year and am having a lot of fun.
      Nothing too serious and I don't have mega expectations but I'm starting to wonder if my images could be sharper and there's something I'm missing.
      I'm attaching a picture which is the best 10% of a 3 minute video with 500d 'bolted' straight to the 200p f5 scope. No filters...no barlows...just camera straight on.
      It's sharpened and saturated after the fact so in every way this is the sharpest I can get it.
      I've always had the same issue whether it's with a single shot, stacks of shots, or stacked video.
      Views through the eyepieces (circle-T 12.5/25) are mega sharp!
      I'm happy that collimation is very good and it was a remarkably clear night tonight.
      All in all I'd be pretty happy with this image (maybe over exposed a bit...) if the craters with shadows didn't make me want to rub my eyes.
      Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice!
