...at least with this next set lol

 

I've been having issues lately, both with weather and computer but managed to go out on Oct 5 and 12, a day before closest approach and opposition for Mars. Here's what I got on the 5th.

 

First off I'll start with the moon. The famous Plato

Aristarchus, Herodotus and Vallis Schröteri. Exposed to show details on Aristarchus as it's the brightest feature on the moon, rendering the rest a bit dark.

Agrippa, Godin and Dionysius

Goldschmidt and Barrow

Next will come the star of the show, the planets grin.gif

Thanks guys

What Telescope was used on those moon photos they are great 

These were shot with the same setup as mars, at prime focus on the 10” sct, around 2800mm FL as measured a few months ago, using the red filter and the ASI178MM.

Wonderful images with excellent detail. I have a soft spot for the crater Plato and you certainly have resolved the craterlets in its interior.
Cheers Paul

Thanks, I’m quite satisfied with them. These were really my first attempt with a “real” camera but the moon is really what drew me to planetary imaging in the first place, so I will keep imaging it for a while. But after Mars is gone, gotta enjoy it while we can as it won’t be this nice for the next 15 years lol.gif

I also have a certain draw to Plato, always tried to capture the craterlets with my Canon and never could. This is my first real attempt at the moon since I got the ASI, what with Jupiter, Saturn and Mars drawing all attention latelylol.gif

Yep, I remember the struggles back in july with Jupiter and Saturn being only about 60* high, those were tough times lol.gif  Thanks for the compliments
