Nice Moonlit Sky Photo

Postby Aratus » Mon Jul 18, 2016 1:42 pm

The nearly full moon, Mars and Saturn made a colourful sky in the 17th July. I had friends over so the telescope was only been used for siteseeing. I thought a photo of the sky with the observatory in the foreground, backlit by the moon would look nice.
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.
