Some Moon Images from June 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Also going through my backlog of lunar images from June 2018. Here are some of by best images so far.
Only using the most basic Altair Astro GPCAMARO130C, but this little camera, I think,  gives great results.

Photos processed through Autostakkert (using x1.5 Drizzle), tweaked slightly in Registax and then GIMP.
 
Photos 1, 2, 3 and 4, all shot with the GPCAM through my Intes-Micro MN56 Mak Newt telescope. This scope gives pin sharp views of the moon and is fast becoming my favourite imaging scope for the moon. 
It absorbs a x2 barlow very well, without image breakdown.

Photos 5 and 6, taken again via the GPCAM, but through my largest scope, my Vixen VC200L. Again the Vixen gives stunning views (once fully cooled) and is a good telescope for Moon Imaging.
Regards,
Steve

      Hi, 
      During the 3 clear nights in a row, I had last week, I could not resist giving the Horsehead Nebula a go, using my Vixen VC200L.
      Whilst imaging with my Canon 450D via APT, I could not make out the Horse's head whatsoever on my laptop screen, but I knew I was on target, because I could see NGC2023, at the bottom of my screen.
      Anyway I was pleasantly suprised with this result after processing through APP and tweaking in GIMP.
      Not the total failure I was expecting.

      Image Info:-
      Vixen VC200L Telescope
      Canon 450D camera unmodified
      ISO 1600
      All I could do before fog ended the night:-
      x20 120 sec Lights, x20 100 sec Lights, x10 80 sec Lights, x10 40 sec Lights
      x21 Darks, x40 Bias and x40 Flats

      Processed in APP 

      Regards,
      Steve
