A few moon scapes.

I was surprised by the relatively good seeing last night (11/05/2019) as the Moon was heading towards the western horizon.

Taken with the Mewlon 210, Tak x1.6 Extender and ASI 174 MM.

I only managed to rattle off a few AVI's before the seeing was locally affected by nearby roof tops releasing the day's heat.

Cheers

Dennis

Lovely crisp images, the seeing must have been co-operative. The Theophilus region is one of my favourites .

Thanks Steve and Jeff, I appreciate your comments.

The jest stream map didn't look too promising but when I pointed the 'scope at the Moon, I was pleasantly surprised to see how steady the seeing conditions were.

However, within 15 - 20 mins they began to go down hill as the Moon sunk lower over neighbourhood roofs. I think that localised heat plumes affected the seeing.

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks Derek and Dave, I appreciate your comments.

@Dave - I find that the FOV (with the Tak x1.6 Extender) on 1920x1200 pixel chip to be soft at the edges and sharp in the centre, typical of the DK design I believe.

However, its nice to have the larger chip and I can just crop the centre region for the sharpest image.

Cheers

Dennis
