Daylight moon

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The first time I gave it a try to capture the moon during daylight hours. I had seen other peaople pull it off succesfully. All the below images were taken and processed similarly:

captured with a 300mm f/20 cassegrain, ASI 174mm and baader IR685 filter, Firecapture 2.6

processing: Autstakkert, Lynkeos3 and Photoshop

enjoy the images and please feel free to share your toughts or comments.

Wouter.

Very nice! Did you have any particular challenges with it being daytime? Did you notice any drop off in contrast?

Hi,

well I was expecting it to be much more of a challenge. But all in all it went pretty smooth with very little difference compared to night time imaging. Yes there was a little bit loss of contrast due to the background being a bit brighter. But that was easily fixed in post processing.

Wouter.
