Moon - 8/23 and 9/24

#1

Post by Ed217 »

Two shots of the Moon about a month apart.

The full Moon from 8/22/21 at 4:14 AM. Taken with an ASI294MC camera, Celestron 8SE scope on an AVX mount. 366 total frames, with best 15% used. Gain of 0 and exposures at 14ms. Processed through PIPP, Registax, and Apple Edit. Was a late start for me, so I didn't have time to fully set up before the moon began to move past the big house next door.

The Moon from 9/24/31 at 4:44 AM. Handheld shot with a Nikon D780, 70-300mm DX zoom, 300mm at ISO 200, 1/2000 sec exposure. Processed with Apple Edit. Was up for a snack, saw the Moon, grabbed the camera and took a shot.
