Walking on the Moon

1st pic with EQ3 Pro and 150PDS


Recommended Posts

Just had time for a quick setup for my first try with my new mount and scope.  Shot with Sony A6000 at prime focus and a hefty crop.  10x20s exposure with 5 darks.  Processed in Astrotools



I need to make a focusing mask for my new telescope, work on my polar aligning and work out how to apply PEC to the mount. (I binned about 1/3 of the photos as the stars were a bit lozenge shaped)   It's way more complicated than my old EQ2 but at least I can now look forward to exposures over 10s long.    :-)  


Amusingly, I still couldn't see it with my naked eye but I didn't allow much time for dark adaptation...
