Lunar sunrise time-lapse

Recommended Posts

Last Friday I finally got around to doing a Moon time-lapse. I wasn't sure what good the small Mak would be, but changes are indeed visible:

SW Mak 127, PGR Chameleon 3 mono (ICX445) with Barlow in the nosepiece (~1.6x), Baader red 610 nm filter, around 2-minute intervals, ~4 h total from 7:15 PM local time. The sky was of course quite bright in the beginning, so frames' brightness has been normalized in ImPPG. Too bad the seeing was steadily deteriorating.

Very interesting. If I watch the shortening shadows it gives a real sense of the sunrise.

Sunrise over the lunar alps? Splendid :).

Thanks, guys.

Ultimately, I'd love to be able to do this with my 300 mm Newt, but I guess it'll have to wait until autumn.
