Mars on the 19th C14

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

It's been a little while since I posted anything on here due to personal commitments. I finally managed to get out at silly o'clock on the morning of the 19th. Seeing was reasonable so I had a stab at Mars. Taken with the C14, ZWO 224 and a Pierre Astro ADC

Hope you like it!

Best Wishes

Harvey

Really nice. Amazing the detail the C14s can pull out.  How does an ADC work?

Looks like there is a lot of dust activity in the Martian atmosphere.

Hi

ADC stands for Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector. It's basically 2 lenses where the angles can be altered to compensate for light that defracts when it goes through the Earths atmosphere. By setting the positions correctly it ensures that the different wavelengths all hit the sensor as they should, which basically means that the image becomes noticeably sharper than if you didn't use one. The lower down the object is, the more benefit these give you. I hope this explains?

Regards

Harvey
