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

Some really good images. Well done. If I have to give a little point of critique.. Maybe the images are a tad dark. But other than that. Really good.

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.

Thanks for your comments. Nitpicking and criticism is totally fine with me. Your feebdack is highly appreciated.
