Recently I've made my personal leap of faith and bought my first telescope SkyWather Skymax 90. The main reason was to go even closer to the moon. Previously, I was shooting with my Canon 77D, Canon 55-250mm & Kenko TC x1.4. So from 560mm to 2.000mm it is an improvement :-)
I couldn't say that I am really happy from my final result on my latest full moon shot... I think that my shot is not clear enough..
I would like to share with you my setup & post process and I would be more than happy to hear your ideas for improvement.
- Sturdy tripod with Canon 77D (attached T2).
- Mirror locked
- Time : 02:00 with ~30C temperature
I have to say that I was waiting to get a clear image of the craters but this is not even close :-(
So, am I missing something? Is this only the weather ? (heat, humidity) Is this Mak's fault ? (I really doubt about that) Camera's fault? Should I consider to go on an Planetary camera ? (ASI etc.)
Should I start shooting video and not stills? I can understand that more frames will be better, but I am also interested in printing those files, so I think anything like 1000x1000 will not be ideal.
(If anyone is interested in, I could provide the raw files for further investigation).
