Copernicus Crater

The Moon

These images are my first light with a The Imaging Source camera.
Until now, my images are make with a webcam, but the jump of quality is enormous with the DMK 41AU02.AS USB camera.

The images are the result of processing a 45 seg video (15 FPS) with Registax, post-processing with Maximdl (curves and levels), and final touch with The Gimp free GNU software.

Only IR cut filter are used. The telescope is a Meade LX200 8″ F:10 classic.

The seeing was very good.

A great camera!!!

Thank you Javier! Feel free to send us more of your astronomy pictures.
