Gassendi - MoonRakered

Postby jjb2011 » Fri Nov 11, 2016 11:17 pm

An 11 day old moon puts the crater Gassendi right on the terminator and so in a good position to get some nicely illuminated images. I set up last night with my 100mm f13 achromat from Moonraker Telescopes. The scope was set up on a manually controlled alt-az mount (skytee-2). Images were captured with DMK camera as the image rapidly move across the small sensor chip from one side to the other. With this movement I could record about 1000 frames at 60fps.

This first image was taken using a 742nm filter

This next image is taken with with ir block filter

Both images are 300/1000 frames stacked and processed in R6

Im not too sure that the 742nm filter has improved the image much. The image rotation seen between the two images is a result of the use of an alt az mount and a time difference of about 1hr between images.
