Mars through 60mm telescope

Posted By Alvaro Garay

Hi !
I took this picture on 08-18-03 using a sony handycam..
it is just a single frame because I don't know how to use registax..
I was made using a 60mm refractor telescope.. and a 12mm eyepiece.
It's not the best picture, but that shows how much detail on Mars you can see through a small telescope.
Bye..

Mars From Winter Springs, FL

Posted By Alvaro Garay

Hi !
I took this picture last night August 26 Using my Sony Handycam. DCR TRV310.
I selected 417 frames out of 615 and used Registax to stack them. I don't have something to attach the camera to the eyepiece so I held it with my hand.. It was very difficult to keep the planet in the center of the screen, but I did it !!!!!!! jejeje

Hope you like it !

shadows

Hi,
On Nov 3, I took this picture of a moon feature, (which I don't know the name), but it was very interesting because of it's shodow on the moon's surface.
I used a sony handycam and a 6" reflector telescope.
I think this pick has to be very tall.. any idea about how tall could it be?

Thanks for looking,

Alvaro

saturn moons

Posted By Alvaro Garay

Hello !
I allways wanted to capture the moons of saturn in tape, finally yesterday night I had the opportunity to set up my telescope and take some video of saturn
I used a Sony Handycam trv310 in nightshot mode and a 6" telescope. Also used registax to align and stack the frames.
then with picture windows pro I put the lables with the names of the moons.
Thanks,

My best Jupiter Until Now.

Posted By Alvaro Garay

I took some videos with a Kodak Easyshare DX6340 on march 31, 2004 and april 1, 2004. both between 6:45pm and 7:00 pm
I used REGISTAX to proces the video and Picture Windows Pro for the picture.
I don't have an adaptor to attach the camera to the telescope so I hand held the camera to take the videos.
Also, I used a 6" reflector telescope and a 5mm eyepiece.

thanks for looking,

comments are welcome.

PS.. in registax, how does the quality filter band have to be placed? start? width?
