After messing with Jupiter I had a go at doing a few Lunar with the Mak 180 and IMGOH combination.


 


These are all at F15, atmospherics didn't allow anymore, the image was boiling last night. Scope had cooled properly as there was a layer of ice on it when I took these :) It was a touch cold


 


Anyrode just a few samples


 


Mak 180, IMGOH mono, Stacked in Registax, each about 2000 from 2500 frames at 30fps

It was bad atmospherics wise last night but it was nice to be out with a scope and camera again. It actually got worse as the night progressed so the jet stream must have shifted a bit during the session.


 


Even visual it was poor


 


Still its all being logged as observing and experience time

Those are lovely and sharp Phil. I have just one image to upload and it is a close up of the moon. My Jupiter efforts did not pan out at all! Love the above shots-very nice indeed :)

Been playing with Pipp and AS2 and had a play with the Plato image and redone it properly with the data I had available


 


Much better I reckon, you can actually see some of the craterlets on the floor of Plato also the central rille in the Appenine Valley is coming through.

We need an ems solar system imaging master class. I have all these bits of software but am just too scared to try and learn how to use them.

I agree, I have messed about with Jupiter but not got anything decent yet so am in need of some pointers.

Phil, could we do a solar system imaging thing one cloudy might in the pavilion at wymeswold? We could get the projector and different people could show what they do, and the rest of us mimic it on our lap tops, all using the same software and data which could be downloaded / circulated before hand.
