Hi,

 

Below an image I made of Aristarchus, Vallis Schröteri and Herodotus.

 

Equipment is my CFF CC300 f//20 paired with a ASI 224MC and Astronomik Proplanet 807 IR pass filter.

 

Seeing was less than optimal showing in some softness of the image. Despite this there is more clearly visible detail as opposed to the ASI 174 in better conditions at same focal length.

 

Enjoy the image, feel free to comment.

Wow. Picture AND scope. 

 

Is it possible that the picture is slightly out of focus? 

 

Also, if ya want, post pics of your rig !

Hi,

 

Thanks for having a look and commenting;

 

Regarding focus it's hard to tell. I guess the image is in focus, but the bad seeing may have blurred the image a bit. When seeing is bad it is also much harder to focus the image. 

 

For my setup have a look at this picture.

Its an interesting location and a nice image,  but perhaps unfairly, I look forward to one day being blown away by a capture that unlocks more of the potential sharpness and resolution power of your 300mm scope.  I know nothing about your site in Belgium, in Canberra I suspect such nights that could do that are rare at this time although some very attractive C14 images have recently been achieved in March by Lacaille
