High résolution close up with 625 mm and QHY5-III 178 M. 3 april 2017

Recommended Posts


I was able to enjoy a few minutes of very good conditions to make Theophilus After regular degradation forced me to work more and more in infrared until abandonment. Theophilus shows the capacities of a large diameter in good condition very rarely available.
The following images are close-ups of craters almost never photographed so precisely by amateurs except Endymion.

Most of their images were taken by satellites.

The favorable libration made them most accessible.

I hope you will like.

Clear skies.

Excellent images as always. The detail on Theophilus is just amazing.

      I am thankful for the unseasonable weather and imaging i have getting.
      This is shot with my super high speed camera.   If you pay attention to the sunspot penumbra you will see a little worm like appendage retreating into its core.  Also notice the pulsating center.
      Captured at 500fps.  

      and the rest of the film captures that larger fibril get sucked back down the drain.      .

      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!
