Moth watching – March 23, 2019

Posted in Comana, Plimbari on March 24, 2019 by maxpho

Went out with my brother-in-law for a short moth-watching/collecting in the woods. I’ve also wanted to test some of my new equipment: a newly designed moth light, and my brand new macro-flash. Luckily o lot of moths were attracted so I could test both items for a long time.

AR2736 – H-alpha images – March 23, 2019

Posted in ASTRO on March 24, 2019 by maxpho

A new shot of AR 2736 preparing for departure. Still a lot of activity, but it seems that it is fading compared to yesterday.

150mm Achromat, Quark H alpha filter, ASI 174MM. Seeing 4/10.

AR2736 – H-alpha images – March 22, 2019

Posted in ASTRO on March 22, 2019 by maxpho

My first H-alpha solar image of 2019, and a superb subject: a very fast growing sunspot group, designated AR2736. A source of C-class flares. And a joy to observe the fast changing chromosphere inside this group. a lot of Ellerman bombs are also detectable in the image.

Equip: 150mm achromat, Quark Chromosphere, ASI 174MM. Seeing 4-6/10.

High resolution lunar images – March17, 2019

Posted in ASTRO on March 20, 2019 by maxpho

A few images acquired under some very poor seeing conditions. However, the use of the IR-pass filter helped a lot. So much that one of the smallest details imaged is under 500 meters!

Equipment: 355mm Newton, ASI 174MM, Baader IR-pass filter. Seeing 4-5/10 (in Red).

Moon craters – March 15, 2019

Posted in ASTRO on March 16, 2019 by maxpho

This must have been my shortest lunar imaging session ever. Almost 25 minutes, until the very fast forming clouds rolled in. No time for proper cool off for the mirror, and the seeing was quite poor also. Nothing notable in these images in terms of resolution, but the striking bright limb of Copernicus on the terminator deserves a post.

Equipment: 355mm Newton, ASI 174MM, Red filter. Seeing 5-6/10.
