The Moon – 2018-09-20

This is the first light of the ASI 120 MM camera, the most recent addition to my instruments. The Moon below is a mosaic made with the N 150/750 and through a Barlow lens.

Full Moon 2018-08-25

I imaged the ~full moon using the MC 102/1300 and the ASI 224 MC setup. Mosaicing is always error-prone, because it is hard to find the optimum between missing out parts and over-covering the surface with far too much overlaps. I almost left out tiny pieces of the surface, but the final outcome is ok.

Moon, Libration, 2018-08-19-20-21

Moon, 2018-08-21

The images in this post are made with the ASI 224MC at the MC 102/1300 and the N 150/750 . With the wider field Newtonian it takes only 6 pieces to image the (~half) Moon. The processing and mosaicing is still a time hog, but at least its only half the time and pieces. Everyone who has ever done a lunar mosaic knows that there is a high risk and thus paranoia regarding coverage, and that we need to find a bearably balance between getting all the necessary pieces without too much overlap. Taking into account a minor drift of the field of viwe which is actually a good thing for the picture quality, recording and then mosaicing is in fact harder than it sounds.

Lunar Eclipse 2018-07-27

Just before the Sun got lost

I imaged the lunar eclipse, as much as the clouds allowed me to. The main instrument was the Canon 1100D mod @ SW MC 102/1300 on the HEQ5. The secondary instrument was the battle tested veteran raspberry pi, and I used a Canon A800 too, and my phone.

Sunrise on the Moon

I recorded the Moon for three hours in order to capture the shadows get shorter, and mountains get into the light. The clouds were not my friend, so I kept four frames out of the 32 I recorded. I used the Skywatcher MC 102/1300 tube with the Scopium webcam, mounted on the HEQ5.

The Moon – 2018-01-31

There is nothing special about this date, no eclipse was visible from most of Romania, I simply imaged the Moon. I used the MC 102/1300 plus the Canon 1100D mod for the disk (13 frames) and the Scopium webcam for the details. Enjoy.

Planetary images from the long weekend

ε Lyrae

Using the N 150/750 on the HEQ5 and the Scopium webcam, I obtained the following frames. Do note that planetary imaging means a technic – many frames, a 1-2 minutes long video of short frames, stacked -, essentilly lucky imaging, so planetary does not mean a target type. Just sayin’ :P

The clouds obscured the occultation of Porrima, so next time.

Some Solar System

Sunspot 2661

A few clear hours, in conjunction with my free time, allowed me to take some photos: the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn. I still could not find Enceladus. The setup: N150/750 and MC 102/1300 on the HEQ5, Scopium and CCD Labs Q-Guide webcam.

Hold-mozaik 2015.07.08.

Az EQ3-ra szerelt MC 102/1300-as távcsővel és ATIK 314E kamerával dolgoztam, a kamerába belecsavart (tehát a toldat nélküli) barlow-lencsével. A mozaikrögzítést nagy átfedésekkel végeztem és rögzítés közben GIMP-ben ellenőriztem, hogy a korong minden darabját legalább egy kocka fedje le. Kevésen múlt, hogy nem csúszott hiba a műveletsorba.

Jól kalibrált monitoron mindegyik számnál elkülönülő árnyalat látszik. Ha mégsem látszanak, akkor a megjelenített képek színhiányosan rajzolódnak ki. A monitort valószínűleg kalibrálni kell.

You should see distinct shades for each number. If those shades are not clearly visible, the displayed pictures will lack accuracy. Your display most likely needs to be calibrated (brightness, gamma, contrast etc.).
