Copernicus, Plato and friends (2020-02-05, C11)

Recommended Posts

I don't know what happened, suddenly we had 2 or 3 consecutive days with good seeing here in Germany last week.

Took my chances and went out with the C11 I aquired  a bit more than a year ago.

Here are the results, and I must say I am quite happy with them. I know that many guys here can do more, but I still consider myself as a beginner and will be glad if I could continue learning from you.

Copernicus with some area around


Copernicus only







Sinus Iridum



C11, ASI ZWO 290 MMC, Baader IR pass filter, no Barlow

Excellent captures.  Maybe ease off on the contrast and sharpening a bit.  Over sharpening can create some artefacts that resemble poor focus but I'm just nit picking really.  I find the 290 chip perfect for Lunar imaging.
