on a funny note im not sure whart was going on it looked like sky divers lit up at night but it wasnt. i think some people were doing some kind of stunt with drones anyway i looked at the sky and it was filled with what at first looked like bright stars. i think they were fllying them from planes. i couldnt look through the eyepiece it would have been over the pool or else i would have been able to see exactly what they were. i need a bob mount and servo cats the gem is way tofrustrating

Great to see some 'fresh' work from you Ferret.  Seeing may have substantially softened the images but they remain very awe inspiring shots of interesting parts of the moon.

Nice images.

 

Resolution and detail seem to be quite fine, or quite  bit more than fine grin.gif . What I would have done though is either adjust the colour balance to be more accurate, or convert to b/w. now the images appear to be a bit too blue.

 

Kind regards,

 

Wouter.

These are better than most of the images I get, with the same camera and an 8-inch Celestron EdgeHD Schmidt-Cassegrain. Try imaging here and you will see what truly LOUSY seeing is. Well done!
