enjoyed your photos
what equipment did you use?
Thank you. Celestron 8SE, ZWO ASI224MC camera, UV/IR Cut Filter.
Firecapture -Autostakkert!3 -Registax 6 - Lightroom, in that order.
Used a 2x Barlow for one of the pics.

Some very nice images there Kevin..!
Thanks Darryl. Coming from someone who himself produces some VERY AWESOME images, I take that as quite a compliment.
It's true what they say - seeing IS everything (as long as your settings are right).
Next project is a moon mozaic for me. I'm thinking of using a f/6.3 focal reducer on my scope, and no Barlow. That way,
I can grab a wider area of the moon each time and overall have less pieces to assemble in the mozaic. Given the seeing I
get here (and these latest images are from the best seeing I've er, seen, in SIX MONTHS!!), does this sound like a reasonably
achievable goal to your distinguished self??

Ha-ha Kevin...any Moon mosaic you achieve will be infinitely better than anything I've done - I've never attempted one tbh!
Embarrassed to say that all our Moon shots are done as an afterthought from planetary imaging when we are about to pack up!
Good luck with your "project" & look forward to what you might achieve!
