Imaging under a full moon last weekend.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Just a bit of imaging from the clear nights we had last weekend here in the midlands, sadly being a full moon also. Pretty much using every bit of my set up also.

Got the Double cluster and Owl cluster, both on the 600D and ZS61 with the HEQ5. 2 hours each.

Then the Andromeda galaxy on the 800D and Samyang 135mm with the Skyguider pro for 4 hours.

All processed in StarTools.

Let me know what you think :)

Great images, I think star clusters are quite tolerant of moonlight, as your results demonstrate.


I think clear nights, even when the moon is up, are too precious not to try and image something.

I agree! I think star clusters are what a lot of people avoid also, as they're mostly 'boring' compared to them nice colored nebulae and galaxys we see, so I find a full moon is a good excuse to shoot some of these :)
