My attempts at astro imaging

New one for me – the moon!


Well….. I usually hate the moon, it washes everything out and although I have an Ha filter to combat this I usually just give it a miss when Luna is around. Today though, I got a request from a former colleague for a moon image for his website and I was rather embarrassed to have to admit I did not have one! I did take an image years ago but dont know what happened to the file.

So this I suppose is a first light image from the new observatory(which I still have to post up some images of), taken tonight, through my 8″ F4 Newt, 21 images stacked in Registrax and a wee tweak in Photoshop.

    • Thanks very much! Was nice to Image the moon for a wee change rather than cursing her!

    Many thanks blinky. That is exactly what I was looking for! I’ll give you a shout when the site is up and running. Hopefully I can do this justice.

    • Not a problem – Glad it was what you wanted. Was a pleasant change to image the moon, never done it for years!
