Slipped out after dusk from work, and got a decent window. :)

2 piece mosaic shot with my usual DSLR and telephoto combo.

Waxing 30% @ 38 degrees.

And another great night! Tonight I imaged from the observatory grounds with the Astro Society I am now a member of. It was my first time there... and as luck would have it, the seeing was outstanding! Got a look at the moon through a 20 inch Obsidian telescope, and WOW was that something.

Quite happy with my own images too!

Here is the first from the pile of files.

Same setup as last night. My 400/4.5 + 3X + 1.4X on my Sony A77ii. 2 panel mosaic. 140 frames per side.

2019-05-10 40% Waxing

I think I can see that American flag someone left there 50 years ago!

A couple of lunarscapes taken last night (11th May 2019) through my Takahashi 210mm F11.5 telescope with an AIS 174 MM camera.

Heya,

Rained all day, clouds all day, but then got clear this evening. Seeing was poor, so had to resort to longer wavelengths.

200mm (8") F6 Quartz mirror, operating at F18, 610nm wavelength on a monochrome sensor (IMX174).

Very best,

Some very delicate fine detail resolved in this set Martin, looks like your technique and 610nm filter really tamed the seeing conditions.:-)

Love the relaxed processing too.

Cheers

Dennis
