Recommended Posts

The Moon at First Quarter on the 12th of May 2019 - a very clear and stable sky over our backyard in Lowestoft.  Images taken between 21:00 and 21:30 BST as the sky began to darken.   A composite of three x1/160th second exposures at ISO800 – exposures taken in bursts of ten - best three 'lucky' images selected by eye .  Taken with a Canon 600d DSLR  on a Meade 127mm.apo- refractor with 2.5x Barlow (f=2250mm)- all on a NEQ6Pro mount.  RAW images converted to PNGs in Digital Photo Professional  - three images combined using Microsoft ICE– resized and minor colour and luminosity adjustments in Photoshop and ‘iteratively sharpened’ using FitsWork4.
