Postby andrewscomputers » Mon Jan 21, 2019 2:28 pm

Hi all I went outside at 2.30am and set up my telescope and I used a Canon 550d,2x barlow and a skywatcher 80ed scope.I managed to capture 93 images in raw and jpeg from the start until totality.I stitched 31 images together using Microsoft Ice and I did a single image of the shadow coming across the face of the moon.I thought I would share.Thanks for looking.

You notice that blue edge between the light and shadow? That is the violet layer in the upper atmosphere. You might be able bring that out better with a bit of colour manipulation. I've noticed a purple tinge on other photos taken last night and shown on the internet, and maybe the violet layer was particularly strong during this eclipse. btw. It goes without saying that they are brilliant images! 8-)
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.

Same as that! So I couldn't believe how clear it was this morning here. All 4 stars of the bowl of Ursa Minor (mag 2, 3, 4, and 5 ish) were visible. A few more evenings like that would be nice!
