I'd probably have to sell a kidney.

But my wife insists she needs both of hers, and my grown kids keep hanging up on me.

Tonights 73% moon. 2018-11-17

At 1600px it is MUCH reduced from full size. lol It still looks good at 2048px but past that to its full size of 4135X4135 it would only be of interest to severe moon geeks - its not all that sharp but still does show more details - mushy as they are.. ;)))

A77ii + Minolta 300/2.8 + 3X TC + 2X TC (1800mm)

Tonights moon - low down so lots of distortion and hand held - so not the best.

No kidding - you can see the craters in the craters!

Here's another "ordinary" shot from last night. Taken right around sunset.

Last nights effort with my 300/2.8, 3X TC + 2X TC. (1800mm) My date is wrong on pic... was 18th.

Two panel mosaic each panel a stack of 170 frames. My first one.... with a few bumps learning how to use my software in new ways, but I managed it in the end.

Very best,

Martin,

Wonderful pictures as always!

Question: How much time and work is involved to change telescopes on your cement pillar? Just curious!

Thank you

Hello,

Maybe 3~4 minutes? They're all in the observatory, so I just put another one on top and bolt it down. I just balance in RA & Dec on the mount with the counter weights and placement of all accessories. Since I use the same scopes, I generally already know where everything approximately needs to be for balance. The heaviest scope is 26lbs on its own. So not too bad to pick up and put on there.

I pay for this convenience though via having built an observatory with a roll off roof and ran electric to it, and I built a 1300lb concrete pier with steel leveling plates that holds the mount permanently polar aligned. And that stays covered with a golden rod (heating element that keeps everything warmer than ambient to prevent dew formation). Takes me a minute to walk out to my observatory, less than 1 minute to roll the roof off. Maybe 2 minutes to uncover the mount and scope and open up the laptop (always on) and plug a few things in. From there, within seconds the mount is on and computer controlled and points where I want with a click of the mouse on the subject (I use Stellarium as the interface controlling the mount with ASCOM drivers and EQMOD). If I have to change scopes, it takes 3~4 minutes roughly to get the other scope, balance it, etc, and put away the other scope. They're all out in the observatory so it's all right there. I'm so lazy I want a second pier and mount so I don't even have to change scopes... hah.

If you care to see, here's the build log and updates: LINK (external link)

I am not sure if you are aware or not, but you have a lot more 'information' in your moon shots than what you have shown.
I hope that you don't mind, but I downloaded one from the other day and your latest (uncropped) shots, they look VERY good after Curves and some other adjustments, plus sharpening.
The only reason I downloaded it was to 'see' if there was enough image information there to make them look better, and sure enough.
(I only used a quickie program too, I wasn't even using Photoshop)

If you want I can send them to you, or, post them here. Don't worry, I will not use them, I only do that to pictures that I think have a lot more potential, I don't steal photos. :)
