Really nice imaging and processing, but curious about the RGB moon.

Really nice imaging and processing, but curious about the RGB moon.

Moons and more so last year's Jupiter/Saturn conjunction are the main reason I gave away RGB mono imaging for one shot colour again. This image does a wonderful job of explaining why. It could potentially be fixed by derotating around a central green image, but the moons move at a different rate to the planetary motion (except for Ganymede which is close to the same rate) so winjupos may still make a mess of it.

Hi Christian,

 

wonderful picture and very high level of details.

 

As information, since the instruments looks like an RC configuration, do you know the obstruction percentage ?

 

Filippo.

Thanks to all :-)

 

Jim, processing RGB moons is a bit of a pain. A color sensor would be much better for this as pointed out by Ittaku.

 

Filippo, the central obstruction is 40%, which is huge for planetary imaging. The primary use of this type of telescope is deep sky imaging.
