1st Quarter Moon 3rd January 2020

Recommended Posts

First imaging session in 4 weeks!


A lovely 1st Quarter Moon. The whole shot using the new Canon 6D full frame camera and the detailed images using the Altair 290M camera. 3000 frames each shot and using the best quality above 60%, roughly 300-400 frames.
Both on the LX850 12".


I have had the GP290M for about 6 months and it has replaced my Altair 178C for Lunar.


The Canon 6D (mod'd) has been added to my collection. I was very surprised how much Moon I could fit in the FOV compared with the 450D
