Really debating if I should get telescope... Right now I'm stacking a 70-200 2.8 IS, 1.4x TC MK II, on a 40D.

Some lunar action tonight. Around 2pm (Eastern) the Lunar X & V was appreciable, but I was too late to image that. Maybe in April. So in the mean time, I mainly enjoy looking inside craters and specifically like to look at the mountain ranges around some of the maria.

48% illuminated First Quarter lunar disc, this is a mosaic of 8 individual panels. At this scale it's small, take a look at the 100% scale (on Flickr) to really appreciate the resolution.

Montes Apenninus, Caueasus & Alpes bording Mare Serenitatis with the Vallis Alpes.
I specifically like looking at the shadows cast by the jagged spires of the mountain ranges.

Imaged with:

120mm F8.3 (1000mm focal length, 5 inch aperture) achromatic refractor on an Orion Sirius in my observatory (cheap, used, $150)
Mount: Orion Sirius / HEQ5 on a concrete pier in my observatory
Camera: ASI174MM (used, $400ish)
Barlow: GSO 2x (2000mm F17) for mosaic panels (8 of them; 200 frames stacked per panel)
Focal extender: Explore Scientific 3x Focal Extender (3000mm F25) for the high resolution surface features; captured 5000 frames for these, stacked the best 25%.
Filter: Baader Red 610nm Longpass Filter (red wavelengths are less effected by seeing, so this helps with poor to average seeing conditions)
Flat calibration data created with LED tracing pad
I capture my data with SharpCap.
I stack my data with Autostakkert!2.
I further process (deconvolution) with imPPG.
Final edits in CS5.1.

Very best,

Excellent quality. Thanks for the pullback and details of your equipment and techniques. To reach this level of detail isn't for the faint hearted...or thin pocketbooks.

This scope (cheap achromat), focal extender, filter and camera's combined cost is less than lots of lenses being used in this thread.  :p

It's about using the right tools for the right job (aperture in this case, and combining red wavelength light & lucky imaging technique).

Very best,

I'm pretty sure everyone on this board likely started in photography. Astrophotography is a niche of photography in general, and it can be done with standard terrestrial photography gear, there's just a point where it no longer is the right tool and one has to specialize for different results.

Point being though, the right tool for the job, such as not using a small macro lens with a tiny aperture at long distance on a subject and expect to see any detail at scale.

But astrophotography doesn't have to be super expensive. Especially not lunar & planetary.

Very best,

Even I am about to try a different slant on it using a 4/3 mirrorless, looking forward to some clear nights what my camera (Finally) comes back from the menders.

P.


Finally got it right I think - Nikon D500, Nikon 300 F4 PF, Nikon 1.4 X mk3 TC

Indeed, i hope i will enjoy astrophotography more than photography.

Clear skies!
