Dec 22 + 23 Moons Merry Christmas!!


Recommended Posts

Been a while....   Its been a dismal few months on Vancouver Island for the sky...   Can't remember the last time I had two nights in a row.    High rez was iffy...  but seeing plenty good enough for nice results from 120ED.  :)

First is last night's effort with 120ED.  Second  image is done with my recently aquired Hi Rez setup -  Orion 180MAK and ASI290MM. Even shooting in IR seeing was MEH....  but hi frame rate and lucky imaging still got me something.  :)

Third is from the 22nd and my 120ED again.  The MAK's results of that night did not overwhelm me.

Please open up the full discs to see the 100% file!  Seeing was well matched to the 5 inches of aperture.  :)

Impressive amount of details!

Thanks Kon!  It was a lovely and very RARE occurrence of mostly clear sky.  This winter has just been dismal.    Only a few glimpses of the moon (or sky for that matter) since these two sessions.   :(((((((

 

 

Clear Skies!!

Excellent images- your SW120ED is producing truly sharp images, very nice work.

Thanks Gerry!   I do have some good luck with it.   Makes me want to go bigger of course....  lol.  But I should likely stick with the combo I have.

I'm hoping to dabble in lunar imaging but I have a steep learning curve ahead of me. I'm in between Winnipeg and Thunder Bay and have some pretty good seeing at times and just built a concrete observing pad to view/image from.  You are doing excellent with your equipment and I think its a natural progression to go after the larger aperture and the increase in resolution and spacial frequency it provides.

Whats your next step up in aperture? I was thinking of a C8 after I get my feet wet wet with my refractor.
