Smoky moon

Recommended Posts

For the fist time in yonks, the skies have been clear today until some idiot decided to start a bush fire. Moon came up almost full looking very bilious in the face. Probby dept doing a burn off. 

Anyway, I had made an adapter V Bar to fit the Mak90 scope I have and mounted it on the EQ6. Somewhat overkill but far more stable that the rickety EQ1 that came with it.  Whacked the old Canon 350D on in prime focus and banged off a few shots.  Not the best due the smoke etc, but the first time I been able to anything much for over a year.   Tidied it up in "Paint dot net" (sort of a lightweight clone of Photoshop. Free & and has some nice features)   At least managed to do something.  Hopefully more as weather starts to warm :)

Yeah true Ray. If the latest report from BofM is right, looks like during September & November we are going to see clear skies, but at the cost of an 80% above average temperatures.  A very long hot spring/summer.

BTW that moon shot was also made up of 11 images in Registax. Thought I would just keep my hand in.  Probably would have been better with the 10", but the EQ6Pro really makes it great to get the pointy end of the scope in the right direction. :)

 

Could be an update next week on the medical situation. Been for further tests.
