Superb set of images Charl! You are actually spurring me on to try lunar imaging as well. How do you polar align from your room?

thanks Charles, I'm taking some moon pics a the mo, but the clouds arnt playing fair, PA I trial and error, its nearly bang on mate I set it 3 years ago when I first started shoot pics and havnt had to adjust it since, every moving joint on my mount is marked so if I take it apart to take outside when I bring it back in I just line the marks up and its bang on pole again, 1 get 90 sec subs without trails no problem.

 I love taking moon shots "nearly as much as sol" I like doing daytime ones the best I like the challenge. you should take some shots, its very addictive.

thanks charl.

      Good day all, still working on fine tuning my set up.
      Attached is aggressive (first) and soft (last) processing.
      End image is with a focal reducer, no filter, which resulted in more aggressive processing to bring out details.
      I was very impressed with the Baader 685 IR pass filter.
      Comments welcome. Thanks for looking/reading and clear skies.
