Lunar shots


Link Posted 29/03/2015 - 20:19
These were taken last Friday evening, before the cloud came in and stayed, with a K5 ttached to Meade 12 inch telescope and a borrowed lunar filter and focussing done through Live View.

This 1st one has no cropping some tweaking of shadows and highlights and finally flipped vertically.

Mare Serenitatis. This is a rather big crop - obviously.

Also took these two of Jupiter, the one of the rings is heavily PPed.

and this a crop.

This is the first time I've tried anything like this, I think I'll have another go sometime.

That first moon one is amazing! Incredible to get a photo of Jupiter like that last one as well. Great results from your first try
