Hello Alvaro,

really nice indeed. The colors are very interesting, did you enhance them somehow ?

Best wishes,

The coloured moon just a tad bigger

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Dodi,

extraordinary, thanks for sharing!
Interesting that you moved to a Mewlon, how does the M210 compare to the various C9.25 you used in the past ?

Best wishes,
Oliver

Rima Hadley

Hi Ed,

an excellent result, even more for an 8" aperture smile
This encourages me to use my 8" Vixen VMC during the wintermonths for imaging, the cooldown times are much better than those of my SCT.

Best wishes,
Oliver

archimedes

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Alan,

another gem, brilliantly processed. I wonder what else you have in store from august 16th 8)
There are not so many Archimedes images than Plato captures, I wonder why. This area is also highly interesting and suitable for craterlet hunting.

Best wishes,
Oliver

Longomontanus and Wilhelm

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Wes,

great, now I have a high-res reference for my Longomontanus captured some time ago and know what the craterlets really look like smile
Impressive details and a fine tonality, just beautiful.
All the best for your surgery!

Best wishes,
Oliver

My first Saturn of the season

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Ed,

wow, one of the best Saturn captures so far this season, excellent!
I'm looking forward to the moon streams, if seeing was even better... 8)
Personally I'm still waiting for my first Saturn, only clouds and rain over here :S

Best wishes,
Oliver

Petavius

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Tyler,

excellent, impressive level of details, I especially like the rendering of the rilles and cracks inside Petavius.
The processing looks very natural on my LCD display. This is "real" lunar imaging for sure smile

Best wishes,
Oliver
