Simon Behnke took the following two images of the moon on the 18th February 2016. He used a Nikon P900 camera with the equivalent of a 200mm lens at 1/500s and F6.5 The top picture is at ISO 250 and the lower at ISO 180. Image Copyright: Simon Behnke.
This image of Copernicus crater was taken by Adrian Brown on the 2nd February 2014. He used a Celestron C5 SCT at F25, a DMK 21AU618 camera running at 60fps and an Astronomik ProPlanet IR 742 filter. Stacking was performed by AutoStakkert!2 and wavelet processing in Registax 6. Image Copyright: Adrian Brown.
Adrian Brown took this image of the Moon on the 11th January 2014 of the area surrounding the craters Tycho, Clavius and Moretus. It is a mosaic, taken in infrared light, using a DMK 21AU618 camera running at 60fps and an Astronomik ProPlanet IR 742 filter, through a Celestron C5 SCT at F25. Stacking was performed by AutoStakkert, the images processed with the wavelet filter in Registax and the mosaic assembled in Photoshop. Image Copyright: Adrian Brown.
This montage of the Moon was taken by Chris Newsome on the 1st November 2006. All the images were
taken through a Celestron C8-NGT telescope. The main image of the moon is a single shot taken at prime focus with an unmodified Canon EOS300D
camera. The smaller images were taken using a Meade LPI camera and a 2x Barlow lens. The close up of Sinus Iridum comprises 102 frames,
Copernicus 110 frames and Gassendi 334 frames - all in FITS format. They were stacked in Registax Version 4 (released 29th October 2006)
using a multipoint alignment and the images were then processed in CS2 using highpass/overlay, smartsharpen, curves and RGB levels. A further
close up of Copernicus taken on the same night with the same equipment is shown below the montage. Image Copyright: Chris Newsome.
Close up of Copernicus and surroundings. Image details as above.
Chris Newsome took the following image of Copernicus, Eratosthenes and Rheinhold on the evening of the 7th May
2006 using his new Celestron C8 NGT, a 2x Barlow, and Meade LPI camera. 200 frames were stacked in Registax v3 and the resulting image
processed in Photoshop CS2. Image Copyright: Chris Newsome.
This image shows Sinus Iridum at dawn. The terminator cuts across the floor of the feature but the surrounding
mountain tops are in full sunlight. Copernicus is the very prominent crater to the lower centre of the frame. The image was taken on the 8th
February 2006 by Chris Newsome using a Skywatcher 80T refractor, a Meade LPI camera and a 2x Barlow. 135 frames in TIFF format (grayscale) were
stacked in Registax v3 and processed in CS2 using Levels, Curves, Contrast, Brightness, Unsharp Mask and a HighPass filter before conversion
to JPEG format. Image Copyright: Chris Newsome.
Here is a view showing the whole Moon taken on the 8th February 2006 by Chris Newsome. It is a single shot taken
with a Canon EOS300D camera and 2x Barlow through a Skywatcher 80T refractor. The original image (1/250th second at 100ASA) was taken in raw
format and then converted to grayscale TIFF. The image was then further processed using curves, levels, highpass filter, brightness,
contrast, Gaussian blur and and unsharp mask in Photoshop CS2. Image Copyright: Chris Newsome.
Simon Allock took the following six pictures of the ten day old Moon on the evening of the 12th November 2005. All were single images taken with his Meade LX90 and LPI camera, and processed in Photoshop v7 for brightness and contrast and to orientate the images. From top to bottom they show Copernicus, Mare Humorum, Schiller, Clavius, Tycho and the northern Mare Imbrium region. Image Copyright: Simon Allcock.
The following image by Chris Newsome shows the Mare Imbrium region. The crater Plato is near the top of the image. The image was taken by on the 18th February 2005 through a Celestron C6-N using a Meade LPI camera. Image Copyright: Chris Newsome.
The following image of the Copernicus region was taken by Chris Newsome on the
18th February 2005 through his Celestron C6-N using a Meade LPI camera and a 2x Barlow.
