Testing ASI178MMI

I had the opportunity to borrow a monochrome camera to do the tests I always wanted on the Moon.
Below are the first results for colleagues to analyze.
I realized from the outset the advantage of mono cameras for specific wavelengths since I normally use an ASI290MC to do all my captures. This is mainly explained by the fact that, without the layer matrix, a monochrome camera uses 100% of its pixels to perform the capture, while a color camera would use only 25% to capture on the IR 685 which was the filter used.
Despite everything, due to the great fluctuation of my seeing, varying in a matter of a few minutes, I do not discard the advantages of a color camera for color captures, since while a mono camera would make only 1 film I can make at least about 4 with the colored one. This greatly increases the chance of catching a brief favorable moment that can save an entire section of photography.
Moon on May 4, 2020.
C14 Edge + ASI 178MM + IR pass 685
Total of 2000 frames per photo with 350 stacking.

Very impressive Avani.

Any idea what magnification those views would translate to if it was through an eyepiece?

I'm not entirely sure, but something around 1000X magnification. A correct calculation could be made, but I am making a rough estimate.

Amazing stuff. You are giving me aperture fever again. I have the ASI178MM, and it is a great little camera. Currently i do use the ASI183MC more, however.

So create courage and get to work!
