HR images of the moon on Sept 25, 2013 with a C14
Posted 05 January 2014 - 10:56 AM
Here are some high resolution images of the moon taken a while ago (I had no time to process them). All of them are taken with an IDS 3370 camera, a C14, a red filter and a X2 Astrophysics Barlow lens.
First, Philolaus area :
Mare Imbrium :
Platon and the Alpine Valley :
Another Alpine Valley taken a little bit latter with more resolution, and longer shadows over Aristoteles and Eudoxus :
Cassini area :
Hadley area :
Curtius area :
Clear sky to all and best wishes to all for 2014 !

Very very nice details and excellent processing .
What about fps and final stack frame?

Do you take requests? I would very much love to see a high res of Triesnecker Rille system!!!
This is one of my favorite "Test" areas for comparing telescope performance, but the images I have as reference ar not the best.
I hope this is not asking too much..

Mike : I don't remember if you use a field-derotator for you lunar images with the 18" Dob ?
Vasco de Gama :there are 600 frames selected out of the 6000 frames in the video.
The frame rate is 40 fps (25 ms exposure time).
Eddgie : I have some old images of the Triesnecker area with average seeing. Have a look here (in the lower half of the page):

No I don't use a field de-rotater with the Starmaster dob but I think AS2! can fix a slight amount of distortion caused by rotation. Maybe a future version of AS2 will have a feature that can fix FR.
BTW thats a wonderful amount of frames to work with. I have to limit mine to around 3000.
