    Default Images od Saturn, Mars & Straight Wall cliff on Moon!



    I was out with my neighbor Steve on June 6th, we pulled an all-nighter.
    We saw great views of the planets plus quite a few great double stars, Messiers & a special feature on the Moon known as the Straight l.
    It is shaped like a long sword with a noticeable hilt & handle.
    I was told by Steve that it can be hard to image as the Moon has to be in a certain position to catch it in a video or image.
    I was using my Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT & a Neximage 5 camera.
    I used a number of different settings such as the binning & colors plus I used filters such as an IR Cut, yellow even a focal reducer.
    I also did a test video as I 'chased' the ISS with my red dot finder, getting in front of it often.
    I actually see the ISS in the video, the focus was off as expected.
    But on Test #2, I will be focusing on a similar magnitude with a Bahtinov mask then locking onto the ISS.
    Thanks for looking & I'm having a blast while learning more about our great hobby!

    Hi Carl. A great gallery of you images here. You have a nice Mars, with excellent planetary color and some surface markings evident, even as it pulls away from us. Your lunar captures all have a nice contrast and sharp surface feature details, including the "Straight Wall". And Saturn has nice banding colors and a good ring system. You did a very nice job with the 127 SLT telescope on these Carl, and I appreciate you sharing these with us.

    Great pictures. Can I ask what ISO, aperture and shutter speed setting you had your camera on for the images?
