Moon : one of Tycho more accurate picture taken by an amateur. 26 july 16 625mm

Recommended Posts

Hello
I am very happy to present you one of the most resolute images of the Tycho crater taken from the earth.
The only one I know much more accurate was taken by the telescope of 1 meter from the Pic du Midi at 2880 m altitude.

I have taken it in infrared but I can do a little better by using smaller frequency filters but it is necessary that the turbulence is low.

Excellent image. Well done! :)

Wow.  Amazing--bold statements though.  Strange that the Barlow 3 image is the same scale as the Barlow 4 image.  Normally increasing FL provides an increase in image scale.

A great photo colleague Luc. Many visible details that are only possible in very high resolution photos.
I always said: In photography Lunar and Planetary a good ally seeing the grand opening is all you need.

Hello

Thank you for your messages.

You must click on the image to get full resolution.

This picture of Tycho is  one of the best digital images, that I have seen.

You must have a large telescope and good skies, to get the resolution needed to see the tiny craterlets inside, tycho.

Hello
A new version with a bit less noise, a little more contrast and a small reduction to 90%.
Clear skies.

Great shot Luc. What focal length were you at on this ? Of course any image can be resized to any size imaginable. Its resolution that is the important thing. And you do indeed have a lot of great resolution on this image well done.

Not sure if you have seen this but its not too shabby either from the great man himself DP

Check out the Tycho on this page. Though they are all wonderful images

Beautiful image Luc.

I don't know why Neil felt the need to mention the Damian image.

 I think your image is worthy of high praise without the sly comparison.

Crisp, that is a wonderful image.  I could fall into it.

 That seems a rather hostile post Legion ?  Luc was saying

 --- The only one I know much more accurate was taken by the telescope of 1 meter from the Pic du Midi at 2880 m altitude ---

Which I thought seemed to be suggesting there are no others that have been comparable. To the more accurate 1 meter shot.  I wondered if Luc was aware that Damien's work might also be comparable. Not just the 1 meter shot referenced ?

Seems very selective not to attack Rod for saying this 

 --- Wow.  Amazing--bold statements though ---

I could have just mentioned that there are perhaps others that are comparable other than the pic du midi referenced by Luc. But then Luc may have asked where is such a shot ?

I didn't Know if Luc was aware of he's of work, and the comparable accuracy ? I don't follow Luc around and know nothing about him, or how much he is, or is not, aware of others amateur work. Infact Luc's image has likely more resolution than Damien's.

It also seems strange to me that you chose to mention me referencing Damien's work to Luc. While  Completely ignoring  what I said to Luc

--- Great shot Luc. What focal length were you at on this ? Of course any image can be resized to any size imaginable. Its resolution that is the important thing. And you do indeed have a lot of great resolution on this image well done ----

Hello Neil

The focal length is 11 meters.

Yes of course I know the Damian's site and he is a great master.

In france we have made a post to compare Tycho's images.

Clear skies.

Thank you for the information on the focal length Luc. I could tell it was High, but for my own work I was very interested in knowing what Focal Length would produce a image Of comparable detail on this shot. Though with less resolution agreed, as I only have 12" optics. Cheers for the French link I will google translate and have a look there to see the comparisons

BTW Legion Look at Luc's link http://www.astrosurf.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/027236.html  there are plenty of comparisons going on ?

 I would have thought  Luc would expect that, on any post Which is comparing a shot to a professional image only.

I am very surprised what you said hadn't been pulled by the mods, as it was a bit cheeky really

Apologies to Luc for feeling like i had to defend myself. Its a great image certainly better than anything i have taken. As far as i am concerned. Back on topic. 

If legion wants to take the discussion further Hopefully he can pm me. To keep the discussion away from here

      Hi guys! 🙂
      My name is Andrew, I only just stumbled across these forums just now! Couldn’t have come across a better community to help me with some questions I have!
       
      So I’ve Come to the conclusion that I’m going to be buying a Celestron Nexstar 6SE telescope everything about it appeals to me. I currently own a much older manual celestron telescope and am ready for my first proper telescope!
      I do plenty of photography and own a DSLR and am aware that with this telescope that it comes with a software that will record video of what you’re gazing at and stack the images if I’m correct?
      because I’m familiar with normal photography and not so much with Astro photography I was wondering if anyone could help me out. For the stocking software, is that all the process completed within the telescope and no DSLR? Or is that recorded with the DSL are and then the software stacks? What kind of adapters would I need to be getting into AP? By the way I’m looking at mainly photographing the moon and hopefully get some awesome shots of the other planets too! 😄 not so much deep AP, as from my research I’ve gathered that this isn’t the greatest for it... anyways.
       
      Is it better to use a DSLR and an adapter on the eyepiece for imaging? Or the stacking and what would I need for best result stacking images, especially of planets like Saturn and Jupiter?! Are the individual eyepiece attachments you buy for the telescope, cameras in themselves? What is aci?  I’ve got no clue! Haha a lot to learn!
       
      I thought I was on the right track looking by myself for equipment and I came across the 10MP celestron Neximage eyepiece or whatever it is? I’m not entirely sure? And also what is a T ring? Is that a Dslr adapter? Does the stacking software come with the telescope or with additional purchases?!
      Sorry for the bombardment of questions! Obviously I’m very excited to get going and am very keen on getting some equipment! Any answers are much appreciated!
      Have a great day!

      Hi guys,
      So on Tuesday night I spent the evening imaging the moon with my Celestron 9.25 SCT and DSLR as shown below and am happy with the images I collated (I only took images as I did intend to take capture video but I got carried away and time was getting on).
      I have approx 350 jpeg (and the equivalent in raw) images and have used the Microsoft image composite editor to stitch the frames together without editing them first etc but I wonder if I'm going the images an injustice?
      I'm not ready to pay for editing software as I know there is a lot of very good free downloads out there and I'm asking for recommendations. Should I be processing the frames before/after stitching and what software would you recommend? Please offer any advice you have.
      I will post the resulting image once I'm happy with the outcome 😁
      Thanks in advance!

      A quick test on the moon April 30th 
      Zwo ASI 533 
      Mak127
      Software: Firecapture, Pipp, autostakkert , Photoshop
      2 pane mosaic , 1500 frames each panel, with the 10% best frames used in each stack. Combined and edited in Photoshop.
      I made the mistake(I think) of capturing in fit format instead of Avi, although it turned out ok.
