Lunar imaging issues

  1. David57
    It has been stormy here lately, however last night I the sky cleared and there was the moon, bright and clear. So I quickly moved the 6"dob out, put on my projection eyepiece adapter with a 25mm eyepiece and ND filter, attached the Nikon, focused and imaged away. So this morning I loaded the images to my computer and every one had a line and a black dot on it Whats going on. All the images ruined I never observed the stuff in live view. Oh well, delete file.
    I then took the Nikon and blew out focuser and screen, fairly clean, then the eyepiece. Still not much dust. Finally I looked at the filter, well there it was, a nice fat fingerprint in the middle of the glass along with a black speck and a hair, like an eyelash.
    I am cleaning checking everything now.

    David, sounds like the story of my nights of imaging, keep at it and double check everything before you shoot.
