This is my first stab at planetary imaging with my old Celestron 5SE, 2xBarlow and ZWO ASI290MC. Not up to the standard of others on here but pleased to bring out some detail. This really makes me want a bigger scope and mount, hopefully one day. Clear skies all🔭🪐🙂
Guys any suggestions on how to get better results using a 5inch reflector?
For this I used a smartphone to capture 10s video at ISO:200 ,shutter: 1/100
Preprocessing in PIPP and stacked in registax with some wavelets too.
I was taking some images of Mars last night through my 8” Celestron, just low magnification stuff using my Lumicon East Guider.
I used automatic exposure settings on my Canon EOS and just pressed the button on the remote when wanting a pic. Most of them turned out as expected, a small reddish sphere, but two of them were really weird.
I don’t know how I managed to alter the focus twice and to the same extent five images apart, but somehow I must have because this is one of them, the other is almost identical.
it’s definitely a UFO. (only kidding)
Or maybe a lens flare or something.
Anyway, it’s an interesting effect and no doubt some of you will be able to explain exactly what it is....a UFO!
