Thanks for looking,

      Quick go before bed of one data set, taken earlier this evening. Had to shoot through the neighbour's tree, so data slightly compromised - will update through the coming week as I sort more....
      TEC140ED - TV 4x Powermate - Baader Red 610 Longpass filter (courtesy of FLO a week ago!) - Basler acA1920-155um (Sony IMX174m) - Captured in Basler's Pylon software - MacBook Pro
      Processed in AS!2 and ImPPG (both via WINE) and PsCC2017
      Lunar V and X: best 750 from 8500 files. 4000ms. Mono8.

      The image continues to grow...
      Takes a bloody long time to process through 8500 files and AS!2 often crashes (out of memory), so needs to be re-set for each data set!

      The wife sent me an image of me in the process of capturing the data - so engrossed, I didn't know she'd taken it !

      Missed a bit - never mind, first ever go trying to capture the full length ! I made it more tricky for myself when I tried to compose the 'Lunar V and X' to fit diagonally though the original first image...
      A continuation from this thread (have some more data sets to add to that trying out the 5x TV Pm):
      TEC140ED - TV 4x Powermate - Baader Red 610 Longpass filter - Basler acA1920-155um (Sony IMX174m) - Captured in Basler's Pylon software - MacBook Pro
      Processed in AS!2 and ImPPG (both via WINE) and PsCC2017 (including stitching).
      Best 500 from 6500 - 8500 files (struggled with AS!2 running out of memory on some of the data sets, so had to reduce the number of tif files on some (the Basler software doesn't allow me to save .SER/.AVI movie files, just .tifs - used 10 individual sets in total - plenty of overlap). 4000ms, 164-5fps, Mono8.
      Do the tap and you’ll get the higher res version!

      Nothing special, just turned the scope towards the planet once the moon (that I had gone out to image), had gone behind the neighbours tree.
      TEC140ED - TV 5x Powermate - Baader UV/IR filter - Basler acA1920-155um (Sony IMX174m) - MacBook Pro
      Processed in AS!2 and ImPPG (both via WINE) and PsCC2017
      From Oct 26th. Best 300 from 4140 files. Mono12p 12,000ms
      Don't have 1.25" colour filters, so colourised it in Photoshop later based on other SGL member's images!
      Quite pleased for a first attempt and the seeing not being particularly great/

      Seeing not as good as hoped, but managed to grab a few sets before the clouds rolled in...
      This time imaging the waning crescent moon which made a nice difference and also reverted back to Mono8. Usually use Mono12p for solar, as find M8 gives some strange vertical column effects in the dark regions when stretching. Didn't happen this time, so must investigate that... wonder if it is something to do with the ambient temperature as cables and aquisition software (Basler Phylon) was the same...?
      TEC140ED - TV 4x Powermate - Astronomik IR742 - Basler acA1920-155um (Sony IMX174m) - MacBook Pro
      Processed in AS!2 (still can't work out how to run the newer v3 in 64bit WINE) and ImPPG (both via WINE) and PsCC2017
      Image 1: best 600 from 8688 files. 8000ms.



      Image 2:  2 pane mosaic, best 600 from 9920 files for each pane. Ran the camera at 7000ms.




      Did finally try the Solar Continuum filter that Vlaiv recommended, but the exposures for that filter (to get the histogram the same as with the IR742,) was over 20,000ms and decided the conditions weren't a good fit for that. Must get a Red 610 long pass filter next to try (and/or the 685nm... or the Astronomik 642...), to try and find a good balance between steadying the image, speed and resolution. Any suggestions, please drop me a note here!
      Inverted versions as I quite like the hidden details it reveals plus a final 'play' as an Anaglyph 3D - sort of works in certain areas, just a bit of fun!

      Bit late in the day, still getting around to processing, posting and archiving.... apologies!
