Apollo Mission Photos & Mapping.

I'm not sure if this is the right area to post this.
For anybody interested in the Apollo Project, I have found this wonderful link that featues thousands of photographs (nearly 25,000!) taken by the 13 missions (4 to 17 and including Apollo 13).

New Planetary Imaging Set-up - 1st test

I recently aquired one the new Philips SPC900NC web-cams, that has replaced the now discontinued ToUcam Pro. I was interested to see how it compared with my Meade LPI.

I also bought a TeleVue X5 Power Mate to use with it, when attached to my ED80 Refractor.

Last night, depsite less than ideal conditions, a very bright sky due to the almost full moon and breezy, I decided to give it 'first light' on Saturn. ...

Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann

Fragment B has brightened considerably over the past few days. Here are a couple of shots taken over the past couple of days.


Note the wide field shot is about as wide as I can telescopically. A 4 degree separation is equivalent to 8 full Moons!

meade ds 2070 observations

Hallo everybody.
Finally the skies were clear for a few days over Bristol so I had a go on my meade ds 2070.
I was very impressed! Saw the shadow on the saturn rings from the giant, saw 5 moons of jupiter (unless the fifth moon was something else) plus some cloud belts, saw for the first time smudges of m81 and m82 and the clarity with which i saw the moon was very impressing. ...
