The Moon


Chris Campbell


I used a modified HD3000 webcam at the prime focus of a Skywatcher 130/900 on an EQ2 non motorised mount.

I filmed a total of 7 avis, each with 300 frames in and stacked them using Registax 6, the resultant images then formed into a mosaic using iMerge.

Total outlay for the setup used here was £75…£50 for the second hand telescope and £25 for the webcam.

Please find attached an image of the moon I produced on the 2nd January this year. As a beginner, I have only attempted this about five times now, but this has been my best one yet.
