Walking on the Moon

New setup (90 mm) in very good seeing


Recommended Posts

Finally a cloudless day of very good and steady seeing - I got to field-test my new 90 mm mod with Lunt 50 etalon. All shot with PGR Chamelon 3 mono (ICX445), processed and aligned in ImPPG.



Seeing got a bit worse during capturing this:


30-second intervals, 70 minutes total:

I'll add the remaining two animations soon.

Fabulous images and I love the animation.  The movement of the material in a prominence shows you so much more  than you get from a still image.  It never fails to impress me how dynamic all the prominences are.  More please!   :thumbsup:
