Alan Friedman's Sky & Telescope Article

Blogged by John Berryman on June 29, 2007 and tagged with Reviews, Moon.

Renowned astrophotographer and longtime DMK user, Alan Friedman, has a brilliant guide to lunar and planetary imaging in the August edition of Sky and Telescope magazine. In his article he explains both the problems and solutions of increased light pollution and poor seeing conditions. The article reviews not only his imaging techniques, but also his post processing methodology.

On a typical night of moderate to good seeing from my backyard, I use my 10-inch Astro-Physics Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope equipped with an Imaging Source DMK 21BF04 camera and color filter wheel.

I've used the DMK21BF04 for about two and half years - it's a wonderful camera!

Although quite informative, this article does not do justice to the author's photgraphic ability. To see more of the amazing lunar, planetary, and solar photographs taken over the years with Alan's DMK, go to his stunning website:
