Thanks Tel. I'm not sure why the thumbnail is shown here in the forum, but if you click the picasa link, it shows at 384x396, just slightly smaller than the image you posted. I am just starting to use picasa, and apparently when you link images, it shrinks them. I will see if I can figure it out.

Direct Link

EDIT: Appears that it was beyond the size allowed... Probably because it is PNG and not JPG...

I just received my 8SE this week!! Prior to that, I was using a Nexstar 5. So far, I have only had two clear nights, and first light I had a good opportunity to test the scope out with Jupiter. Night two was some very closeups of the waxing moon HSEstesPhotography . The first shot (11/17/2012) was with the 8SE, the others where taken with the 5. I think the last shot Of Orion, was taken with just the Camera (Canon Rebel 3Ti).

Hi again Henry.

You can insert a picture directly into a post - the links are used when either the picture is too large or the copyright belongs to someone else.

To do this, simply enclose the URL of your picture (stored on the Web) with image tags - as shown here

Posted Image

Which would appear like this:

Posted Image

(this is just an example you understand)

In order to get the full text editor in order to insert a picture or web-link, just click on "Preview Reply" and you then get the relevant UBB Code links.

Hope this helps,

Art

That is a nice image of the Moon. A bit of processing may help bring out some more details.

A great shot of the full the Moon, Henry ! :bow: :bow:

It's clear from your website that you are a talented and well practised photographer so I would not presume to teach but only to say, as Maverick199 observed, the image might take a little more processing ? :idea:

For example, and I don't know which processing software you possess, but I think you might agree, this image would benefit from a little "tweaking" via something as simple as free download Registax, a firm favourite, (as you probably know already), with astro-photographers ? :idea:

Best regards,
Tel

Nice shot Henry! Is this a single exposure, or a stacked image?

Despite the moon glow I got a decent shot of Jupiter and Io together like the chums they are tonight....

About 800 frames 3X barlowed with the Neximage cam, wxAstrocapture, 1/25, F5, and Registax 6.

Hi Tim, great pic of Jupiter and its moon. I can never get Jovian moon's for some reason, maybe poor seeing? Anyway, here's my attempt of yesterday night in between clouds. Also took an image of the Moon.

This one of Jupiter is with a DSLR on C6 barlowed, now that Tel gave me that idea of using a diagonal, I find focusing a breeze.

Agree with Art, thats a clean sharp image of the "Bay of Rainbows" (Sinus Iridum) Haseeb,the best i have seen in a good while,makes me wonder what the smallest crater size is in that image, excellent image :bow: :bow: :bow:

regards,

Tom.

Thanks Art and Tom. :jump: I hope Tim's excellent Jupiter attempt does not escape us as I am guilty of posting my images in haste.

apologies to Tim for missing out on his Jupiter capture, i had not gone back to the previous page and so had missed it, nice capture Tim and great scale, not easy to capture Jupiters moons ,so very nice indeed :bow: :bow: :bow:

Also missed your Jupiter Haseeb showing the GRS and junior, some nice detail in the cloud structure,and as with Tims capture good scale. :bow: :bow: :bow:

You guy`s almost tempt me to set up my planetary set up, but its just to much hassle swapping out different OTA`s and possibly upsetting my well tuned alignment,maybe then i need a second mount.

regards,

Tom.

Haseeb,

Your SI shot is one of the best lunar images I've seen. Right up there with Alex Post's shot of Plato from a couple of years ago!

Late to congratulate you, Tim, on a fine Jupiter and Io capture ! :bow: :bow:

Equally so Maverick, (Haseeb), on some stunning Moon landscapes of the Sinus Iridum and the Clavius area ! :bow: :bow:

A good attempt at a X3 Barlowed Jupiter too if not a little noisy. Nevertheless with a little filtering etc. I think there seems to be a lot of data hidden within it. :waytogo:

Best regards to you both,
Tel

Hi Haseeb,

Many thanks, but you are aware that it is YOUR image ? OK rotated, bur it's certainly yours ! :bow: :bow:

Many thanks for letting me "loose" on it ! :bow: :bow:

Best regards,
Tel

NB. I can't produce any imaging of my own making due to our annual, English monsoon season which seems, of latter years, to last from around January to December ! :4
