81% Moon - 24th March 2021

Recommended Posts

Still having a few issues with my DSO setup and fighting streetlights (when the trees bare, so much light leaks in to the garden... hopefully sorted when we move!!)


So I decided to try and get my focus in a good place for no-filter (when I move I'm looking at RGB filterless if I get no light leaks)


Best focus I've had on moon so far... very little sharpening needed in post.


Altair Astro 72EDF

Altair Lightwave 1.0x flattener (left in situ)

No filter

Altair Astro 183C Pro-Tec @ -10

DSD AF3 ascom focuser

Altair Astro MG32 guide package (not used)

captured in SharpCap - 15ms exposures in 5 min SER file

pre-processed in PIPP

aligned and stacked in AS3!

post-processed in PS

approx. best 200 frames

Really lovely image, superb sharp detail.


Thank you... I actually got a lot better skipping PIPP and going straight to AS3! - PIPP stripped the colour for some reason.  Just posting the new one
