Very First Lunar Image!

Recommended Posts

Here we go:

Helios/Skywatcher 200 (8") f5 Newtonian (extra thick spider vanes, NO flocking, dented tube!) on EQ3-2 Driven RA only.

Dropped Canon EOS D60, 200 ISO, 1/10th sec thru Meade #126 barlow (the cheap one I sold Greg before I knew him!!)

Three images stacked in Deep-Sky-Stacker, tweaked for max info then imported into Photoshop where local contrast and unsharp mask was applied (Steve's Actions!).

Thanks chaps (and chappess) :)

I had a lot of fun doing it - think I might even have caught the bug :)

Thanks Greg for your company, the Deep-Sky-Stacker tutorial, pizza and hot-chocolate!

Great first image Steve - I wish my first one had been anything like as good!

Look forward to seeing a few more images from you.
