Mars August 27, 2005

Posted By Edward Roach

Hi all,

Here is Mars from Saturday morning. It's my best of the season so far under good seeing. The overbrightened limb is giving me a lot of trouble and I think it's mostly due to my heavy hand on the sharpening filters. :S

Meade LX90 8" SCT @ f/60, ToUcam 840, IR block filter, seeing 6/10, frames= 452/1812 @ 10fps, taken at 9:08 UT.

Thanks,
Ed Roach

Hi Robert,

They are both very detailed images! I hope you continue your lunar imaging in the future.

Clear skies,

Clavius last week

Posted By Edward Roach

Hi all,

Here is a two image mosaic of Clavius taken on August 26, 2005. It's my best image of Clavius so far. Not on par with the Masters of this group, but I'm very happy with it. I used multiple alignments on each image.

Meade LX90 8" SCT @ f/25, ToUcam 840, IR pass filter, seeing 5-6/10, 190(average) & 174(average)/1200 frames respectively @ 10fps.

Thanks,
Ed Roach

Walter

Posted By Edward Roach

Hi all,

Here are two images of Walter from the same avi taken on August 26, 2005 at 9:40 UT. I tried to process as Paolo had suggested, but I'm not sure if I did it right. On the first image, I used just wavelets and used only slider 1. The second image is the same as the first with an Unsharp mask applied. I'd be glad to recieve any suggestions as I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to image processing.

Meade LX90 8" SCT @ f/25, ToUcam 840, IR pass filter, seeing 5-6/10, average stack of 175/1200 @ 10fps using multiple alignment points.

Thanks,
Ed Roach

Terrific image Robert. It is amazing you can get an image like that under such poor conditions!
