Drove my 127 Mak around the Moon


Recommended Posts

How have you got it without any noise and not under exposed at that mag? do you have tracking?

Mount used was my EQ5 synscan, focal length of optics = 3000mm @ f24.

The mono DMK is very, very sensative so i'm able to capture these at 60 fps with low gain and fast exposures.

These are stacks of 335 frames from 670 captured.

When I pointed the DMK at M42 with the Mak at f12 the core burns out after a couple of seconds exposure.

Mono of course. Have you tried rgbb with it for the planets

Not yet, unfortunately they are not at the top of my "to buy list" yet.
