Some details that stood out last night on the waxing Moon. Craters Posidonius, Theophilus & others. All images under pretty bad seeing, with the 180mm SkyWatcher Maksutov @ F15. ASI290MM.
Best seen in full resolution (click on the image) ; seeing was not really good during the capture, with blasts of bad seeing and once in a while a fraction steady.Continue reading “Moon images”
The sky was not very transparent, and also during the weeknd the public lighting remains on all night. So conditions could be better.
I pictured M27, the famous Dumbell nebula, first with the Esprit120/Nikon D750. 19 shots of 300 seconds on ISO400. Second target later during the night was Luna. I made a mozaic of 8 seperate pictures, composed from 60 seconds of AVI. Also here the Esprit was used ( I forgot to take the C11 out for cooling) with the ASI 174MM in infrared and a 2x Barlow.
