Lunar Images - Using Intes-Micro MN56

Recommended Posts

Hi,
Took some images of the Moon on 5th May using my ZWOASI178MC (non cooled version) camera and paired it up with my Intes-Micro MN56 Mak Newt.
This seems to be a fantastic combination for Moon imaging. The ZWO178MC  seems to "snap into" focus with ease, due I believe to the superb optics of my MN56.
I am also pleased that the MN56 seems to produce good images with my x2 Meade Barlow, and I am looking forward to see the results I can get with future imaging sessions.
Some of the file sizes I end up with using the ZWOASI178MC are huge (ie) 13GB , even after only running off 1,300 frames, however Autostakkert seems to still process them well
even though it takes longer. I am really pleased with my ZWOASI178MC camera (and I am still on a learning curve with it), but if you are looking for a good camera for moon imaging
which won't cost a fortune, look no further. 

Regards,
Steve

That does look like a good combination Steve. Images are very clear and sharp :)
