Hello everybody !

Here are some shots taken last night. The conditions were pretty good at the begining, but worsened as the night went by. I should have begun with the close ups and end with the normal shots... Oh well ;)

Scope and camera : C14 ( 3910mm ), DMK21 ( the old one ), and a Powermate 2.5 for close ups ( 9775mm focal length )

processing : stacking with AS!2, Wavelets with Registax, Van Cittert deconvolution with Iris and merge with Photoshop CS5

Wow...I know I have heard that even with the most powerful telescope you can't see the flags from the Apollo missions but those shots make me think I could! :)

I think these are just BW conversions of macro shots of some teenager's face. No? Then great work!

This is why you DO NEED A SCOPE if you really want to get good detail of the moon or planets or galaxies or nebulaes or star clusters . You WON'T get these kind of pictures even with a 800mm lens and a 2x .

Thank you to all of you :D

Harold and IanW : not even close, haha, the maximum theorical resolution of this telescope is about 600-700 meters on the Moon, which is pretty good, but not enough to see the moon buggy :lol:

Celestron : I agree, and a good starting point for serious lunar imaging would be an 8" Schmidt Cassegrain telescope ( C8 or its Meade counterpart ), best bang ofr the buck imho.

I have a C8 and when you insert my 2x barlow and the 32mm Plossi i get fantastic views . Just never been able to get images that good using a Tele-Extender and a 25mm Plossi or a 12mm Plossi :( . But the views are fantastic !!

Thank you Stayhumble :)

Ron : you should try the Televue Powermate x2.5, it's really a nice barlow. And for imaging, a DMK21 (external link) is an awesome planetary camera for the price :)
I made this image (external link) with a C8, the Powermate x2.5 and a normal webcam back in 2003 ;)
