Just trying my hand......
« on: Mar 11, 2010, 17:22:33 »
Here an image obtained on 11 August last. Taken with a DMK camera fitted with a 0.5X focal reducer, on an 80mm f6.1 refractor, the AVI file was stacked in registax with some final processing in CS2. I've posted it now just to make sure that I understand how to get images onto the forum!

Nice. Any chance of the full sized image ?

Nice, we don't often get to see images of that side of the Moon.  What time was it taken, it doesn't rise until about 10.00pm?

I know.  Last quarter doesn't rise until late, so he must have been up pretty late doing it.  Thought he might remember.

Sorry Carole,

I thought that you hadn't seen the comment, that it was taken last August, and that it was taken this last quarter.  :oops:

It was actually processed with insertion into a digital photo frame in mind, Mike. I, therefore, deliberately kept the size down.

I don't have the exact time to hand at present, Carole, but it would have been something like 00:30 in the morning.

Quite right, Tony, it was taken several quarters ago!  :D
