Lunar imaging with "Dobzilla" :) new
      #5593896 - 12/29/12 08:21 AM

Hi all,

This is my first time here on the forums, so greets from Portugal to all!
My name is Luís Campos, I'm a bicycle mechanic and I live near Lisbon, south of Tagus river. My main interest is planetary imaging but also deep sky with a self peltier cooled DSLR (350D).
This time I bring you the moon, captured with the 12" newtonian and DMK 21 (old chip) with a 2.5 barlow and red filter, seeing was about 6/10 at best. For anyone wanting to go for high res. planetary/lunar imaging these GSO's are a good and very cheap alternative to much more expensive instruments, the optics are very good, very smooth and very well corrected, I highly recomend it!

Best wishes,

Luís Campos

Hi,

No, I use this big newt. on my EQ6, but I have a very short pier I made to keep the mount as rigid as possible,also to minimize the height of the eye piece when observing visually, it can be used for planetary imaging and also some ocasional deep sky imaging but it's imperative that the wind is at ZERO, or else...no go :/ as I image aminly from my back yard there's no wind there so I'm ok with this

You can see the thing in the attached pic.

Greets,

Luís

Your Rupes Recta of Dec 29, 2012 has the most small craters surrounding Birt I have seen. Amazing work for an aperture of only 12 inches.

Very amazing stuff, thanks for sharing! Nice photo of you and the scope, it's always nice to see the observer and his ship!
