Hi Wes,

well, thanks for putting so much work into this image and sharing the results. It might not be the best your setup can produce but it's still a wonderfull result, even more considering the 35° 8)

Clear skies!

AR 898 today!

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Luca,

great capture of this currently very active region. The sun has a magic eye 8) Maybe the processing is a tad to dark ? At least it looks so on my displays.
I'm curious to see your whitelight captures.

Cheers, Oliver

First light TOA130F and sun in UltraViolet light

Hi Dodi,

truely remarkable images and very interesting. I tried the Baaader UV-passfilter myself at the sun a while ago and didn't notice any bigger difference to a green filter. Hm, I used it at lower image scales - guess I should definitely try again with more power tomorrow wink
The rendering of details, contrast and tonality is superb in your images!

Best regards & clear skies,
Oliver

Sun in UV last monday

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

A stunning image Dodi 8) Very dramatic tonal range and great details.
Did you use the Registax Beta with multipoint alignment again or manual multipoint processing in Registax 3 ? No edge structures between the alignment areas this time grin

Clear skies & best wishes,
Oliver

Plato (from a steady night)

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Alan,

nice to see you had good conditions again. A wonderfull Plato, crisp details, great tonality and very 3D looking highlands and hills. Excellent, thanks for sharing grin The green filter together with good seeing resulted in a very good resolution grin

Best wishes,
Oliver

Lambert, a ghost crater and Copernican ejecta

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Mike,

wonderfull grin All these subtle shades of grey of the darker lava material, the bright ejecta rays, the wrinkle ridges and all the tiny craterlets inbetween. Thanks for sharing this great place!

Best wishes & clear skies,
