Taken on 6/28/20. 1992 Field model and a Canon T3i dslr-no barlow, single frame shots. A couple different shots-thrown in, "thermal" and "inverted color".

Excellent and artistic shots, Toddeo!
This phase and from here on until just before full, affords lots of lunar detail using the Questar...such as Rupes Altae.

Below is from the Q’s Axial port, and a Canon T6i, single shot...post-processing by cropping on Photoshop...any further detail begins to pixelate.

If the thermal image really is IR and not simulated coloring  based on brightness, it would be interesting to get Mars with it and see if the polar cap looks cold.

These are really nice! I would have never have thought about thermal and image inversion, pretty neat stuff! 

 

As a side note, the Great Red Spot should be rolling into the center view tonight at 2:30 AM EDT.  Hope you have a chance to view and image!

Thanks-all!  I'll try to get out in the early morning-if the clouds co-operatecrazy.gif .
