Re: Lunar Terminator

David,

Wow, yes that site is quite inclusive!!! So apparently the curved ridge on this side of Mare Imbrium between Archimedes and Plato has TWO names... Dorsae Haas and Spitzbergen (below). Thanks for the link!

Re: Lunar Terminator

Thanks for the kind words, David & Jeff. David, yes these are stacked images. I pulled about 1000 frames at the highest frame rate I could, and stacked and wavelet-enhanced them in Registax. Each single image has way too much noise to be sharpened, and another benefit of stacking is that you can thr...

Lunar Terminator

Fellow clouded out astronomers, I photographed the lunar terminator a couple of nights ago before all this miserable weather, and annotated some interesting features. Got some great dorsa in Mare Imbrium between Archimedes and Plato but couldn't find the names... anyone know these? https://www.dropb...

Re: Conjunction Observing

"with Jupiter popping into view just at about the end of Civil Twilight/5:30 pm" Barry, just wanted to let you know about something I tried the other night that's changed things for me. A few months ago, I loaded "SkySafari Plus" on my iPad, about $7 I think. This has an AR mode (augmented reality) ...

Re: Conjunction Observing

Ok, I just got in from today's look at the planets getting closer. My thinking today was that if my view yesterday with the 66mm refractor with 9mm Nagler was fantastic, my 8" planetary Newtonian with a 40mm Pentax would be mind-blowing. Wrong. I've heard about this but never encountered it before. ...

Re: Conjunction Observing

Yesterday evening I was able to see both in the same field in my 66mm refractor (380mm FL) and a 9mm Nagler eyepiece. They were near opposite sides of the field, but I could very clearly see the rings of Saturn and banding on Jupiter, as well as its moons. This is really exciting!

Re: 298 pictures

Lowell,

Thanks for asking, yes that's fine! I used to be involved on some of the larger forums (especially in the Yahoo groups days), but had gotten out the habit somehow.

Bruce.

Re: 298 pictures

Thanks for commenting, Barry and Lowell. It's hard to explain to most people how doing something like this is "worth it", but it sure was a blast!

298 pictures

Ok, so I took a lot of Mars photos this opposition. The linked movie has the "best" 298 of them from the past month, all individual processed shots through clouds winds mosquitoes and hurricanes, no interpolation between frames. what a fun challenge this was! http://www.brucehousey.com/photo/marsmov...
