I've been finding my way slowly around the constellations now for a couple of years, to some extent ☺, however with clear skies becoming rarer and when clear there is usually a bright moon, I'm taking more of an interest in our satellite; but surprisingly I know little of what to look for. Can you good folks give me some suggestions as to how to get the most out of moon viewing, please note I'm not into astrophotography.
Think my best scope might be my 127mm Mak but also looking for guidance on best set up, eyepieces, magnification etc
National Geographic 90/1250 maksutov is my telescope and thanks for all the replies and support of my previous post it helped me alot and i figured out how to see the moon for example in beautiful quality
but there's the problem i have. I can only see good views and a sharp sight of the moon but that's about it. Do i need a better lens that can zoom even more out or is this the limit of my telescope?
Please let me know if you know a solution to this.
There are observations that will never be forgotten the photos are there to remind them.
Friday, February 15 for the first time in months the weather forecast for astronomy
are optimistic. The day before I had to work with the 807 infrared filter to fight turbulence
but this time the IR 742 passes the turbulence is still there but at times there are details.
It improves slowly then at 20:15 quickly the images become much better.
I see the scree in Clavius D. Instantly I switch from the IR 742 to the red 610 to enjoy it.
Sometimes it happens after passing a plane for a few seconds.
It only lasted about twenty minutes the turbulence goes up as usual but I enjoyed it.
Here are some pictures made in the evening. These are pretty much my best on these targets.
I hope you like.
