Rigil, ek probeer die kraters id op my vorige post se foto met Moon Atlas. Hoe verander mens die tyd? Dan kan ek mos net op die terminator soek vir iets wat bekend lyk.

You can click on the EPHEMERIS tab to set the date/ time.

M42. Ek wou kleur vang en daarom langer blootstelling. My scope is AZ-Alt opgelyn, en met langer beligting is daar beweging maar ek het darm gedink ek kan wegkom met 'n minuut. 12 Sekondes was al, daarna het ek net zig-zag strepe gekry. Hierdie foto is met registax saamgestel van 20 fotos met tussen 5 en 12 sekonde beligting maar selfs hier is die sterre kolle.

At least you can make out the Trap quite clearly. Smiley

Gisteraand se probeerslag. Ek het die scope ge-realign en die tracking is nou beter. Sukkel nog om die fokus reg te kry, maar het 'n beter stacking program gekry (Rotandstack). Omdat ek beter tracking het, is die fotos langer (± 20 sek) en daarom beter kleur. Ek kry nog beweging as die kamera se spieël op kom, maar daar is 'n manier om dit heeltyd oop te hou. Sal dit volgende keer probeer as die wolke my 'n kans gee.

Nuwe speel ding gekry, Neximage 5, maar dit was volmaan en daarom moeilik om detail te kry.

I can see Wallace & Grommit. Did they go again, or is it just pareidolia?

2:30 vm en kan nie slaap nie. Staan op en slaan teleskoop op. Hier is my eerste poging met Jupiter en die Neximage 5. Baie swak! Ek het die Icap 2.3 sagteware wat saam met Neximage gekom het gebruik. Baie gesukkel net om Jupiter in beeld te kry. Op 20% en 2592X1944 kon ek dit redelik kry maar sodra ek na hoër % gegaan het, baie moeilik. Ook, ek verstaan mens moet die video op 640X480 neem, maar kon dit nie in beeld kry nie. Enige tips Rigil? Stacking met Registax gedoen.

Enige tips Rigil?
Only this:
1. Flip your goalposts over into a horizontal position.
2. Remove both castor wheels with a socket wrench.
3. Flip goalposts back into the upright position and anchor securely with tent stakes.

Seriously, I'm not familiar with the workings of Neximage at all. But if I got a shot of Jupiter like the one above, I'd be very pleased!

A flare from a communication satellite rivals Sirius the Dog Star in magnitude.

Awesome (and in the original sense of the word, that is to say, not in the way that we tend to describe things like chocolate souffles these days.)
