Moon 05 Apr '17

Here are my offerings from last night! Firstly seeing wasn't great and the scope had no cool down whatsoever. All done with the Mak 102 and Canon 600D shots taken at 1/100s ISO 100. Quality wasn't great so only 20 stacked!


The first one follows the workflow I developed last month using PIPP, Autostakkert, Registax for Wavelets then finish in Photoshop.

The second was using PIPP, Autostakkert, ImPPG then finish in Photoshop . I found ImPPG a bit of a fight and could get anything decent using there Unsharp Masking, so just tried out Lucy_Robinson deconvolution then finished in Photoshop.

Third is an invert of the second and just thought I'd try it!

Thanks Charl, full cloud here tonight.

I found ImPPG to be great at the more natural look to the moon - but preference went to RS6. 


For solar I use ImPPG primarily. 


Great images!

Tried IMPPG to avoid the black art that is Wavelets, I'll try both for a while and see how it goes.

Very good Steve, getting better all the time, but i would lose autostakkart just use pipp and registax

Thanks Jules, I tried stacking a couple of times using Registax but the results were terrible, not aligned at all. I will give it another go and see what happens.
