Happy Equinox, everyone! Here is an image of the last quarter moon and Saturn I snapped at dawn, shortly after the spring officially arrived for us in the Northern Hemisphere:

And a Happy Equinox to you too, Reggie! It's couldn't come a moment too soon for me this year. This Winter has been foul..... :evil7:

A most apropos Moon & star for the day. Show the balance I'm looking towards.

Onwards -

Dave

      While I had the patience to watch the occultation, my camera battery did not. It died about an hour before the spectacle, but it's okay - I've purchased more back-up batteries. This is a composite image with an accurate distance measured by taking the Aldebaran shot in focus with just a small portion of the moon on the right, then using the stacked moon photo from images taken immediately after. I was using a lunar filter for the contrast, but I don't like how I wasn't able to pull out some more colour. Next time.
      I'm really enjoying all these celestial events that seemingly went unnoticed by me years before, and the challenges of getting decent images.
      Using a Celestron Nexstar 127SLT and a Canon Rebel T5i at prime focus.

      An LRGB image of a 70% illuminated moon. Taken with my Esprit 150 and Trius 814. At this level of illumination the image just fitted my field of view.  After calibration in CCDstack, I selected the clearest images and aligned these in RegiStar.  After stacking/error rejection in CCDstack, I then followed my normal DSO post processing (a mixture of PI and PS) with the exception that I used PS autocolor for the initial colour balance.

      From the Malvern Ridge near Black Hill this morning.  These are with 100-400L on Canon 7D.  Had no luck closer in with the camera attached to an ETX90 tube.  Too low / distorted for any Jupiter detail, but can just make out a couple of satellites here.

      From 30th October 2017. Using a Sky & Moonglow filter that was included with the collection, I didn't know what to expect out of it. (I had previously used a moon filter that left a green tint to everything - the detail was there, but the colour was flat.) This filter didn't cut out as much of the colour, despite having a mild pink hue. I'm still familiarising myself with everything, but I'm looking into things as I go.
      This image is a combination of 7 exposures at various speeds to allow for detail and contrast using a Canon Rebel T5i (gifted to me, so I'm not complaining about a free DSLR) and my Celestron Nexstar 127SLT. I aligned the images in Photoshop CC, and adjusted using Lightroom and the Camera Raw filter to help pull out the colours. I'm excited to keep experimenting with things, and happy to submit this image for review.

      Which would be better, a 13% or 18% transparency moon filter?
      It is for an Orion Funscope 100mm or Meade Etx-60At
      Thanks
