I like your image.  Either I am naive or uninformed:  What does "PC VISUALIZATION" mean?

Better to view from a PC than smartphone

Very Nice image!

What kind of eyepiece projection adapter are you using?

My planetary eyepieces are usually to big to fit the adapters.

Very Nice image!

What kind of eyepiece projection adapter are you using?

My planetary eyepieces are usually to big to fit the adapters.

There are three options:

 

  1. Small - basically an extension tube; only fits short 1.25-in diameter EPs (Plössls and Abbes/orthos)
  2. Medium - extendable, fits larger EPs (including some 40mm Plössls)
  3. Large - fits larger eyepieces

 

I've owned and used all three. I started with the medium, but it wouldn't fit my 40mm Plössl. So I went with the large, but I discovered that there is a limit to how far from the EP the sensor can be before you get strange ghosting in the image—and the extender was at that limit when unextended. I then went with the small, which fit my orthos perfectly.

This is of course a nice and easy solution smile.gif

Great thank you! 

 

I always like your impressive images of the planets bow.gif

 

So for me perhaps it is easier first to change the eyepiece and choosing afterwards an adapterlol.gif

I actually plowed head-long into planetary with several methods, to include the Celestron 8-24 zoom. But I bought my orthos specifically for eyeballing. When I compared the orthos to the Plössls I borrowed, the difference was so striking I decided to go with them. And the ghosting issue made me find the small projection option.

 

It's most likely a Friday night footy night, so DSOs will be off the menu until 10 p.m. tonight. So I've got the Mak acclimating for planetary capture. But a 50 m/s jet stream is never a good sign…

Interesting I will take a look at orthos.

 

Have fun with your footy night and good luck with the jetstream smile.gif

That's an astounding image, especially coming from a DSLR. Amazing work, the colours are wonderfully rich.
