Another mosaic of the Mare Crisium region under different illumination.
This was taken on 14 September 2011 with my Vixen FL102S telescope and 3x barlow and DMK21 camera.
Crater Tychoand surrounding area.
This mosaic was taken on 14 September 2011 as above. When the Moon is full or near full the rays from the impact that created Tycho are clearly visible.
I have recently seen some images of the Moon taken with a CCD camera rather than the usual webcam or DMK camera and so thought I would give it a try.This was with my Atik 314L+ mono webcam through my Vixen FL102S refractor with 2x barlow and with a Baader 7nm Ha filter.I am quite pleased with the result and it is much quicker to take and process.The individual images were captured and calibrated with Maxim DL, stitched with Microsoft ICE and processed in Photoshop. Taken on 5 April 2012.
