    Smile Different colours of Lunar Mare



    This shot from last night caught the different colours in the Lunar Mare. I noticed Mare Serenitatis, there's much darker material at the edge of the Mare than there is in the centre.

    Noo , if you processed in raw , you could bring those colours out really well. You will be doing colour Moonies afore long at this rate . I was seeing some slight colouring last night thru' the newt ( think I actually said ? )

    It is a superb image Carol.
    I am always amazed how contrasty the Moon can be.
    The mastering of new techniques never stops in this hobby. You just got your mount properly aligned I read on another thread....and now you have to move onto raw imaging...
    And this is our hobby?????

    I hope my comment was not ''cheeky'' ( I know you wont have taken it as ) .

    Main reason for saying about the Raw , is that you will do your new frac a great service by using raw. Jpegs are a dis service to that scope. I sooooo cannot wait to see a raw image with the 120ED Carol. Shout if you need a hand with the raw processing.

    Declan , your correct mate , there is always something new to be frustrated with ! We always seem to like to add more links into the chain .

    There, there's the cold of course !

    Hi Pete,

    Not at all! I didn't take it as cheeky. You're absolutely right though, I needed a wee nudge Processing the RAW files has been on my to do list for ages, problem is I have to convert the RAW Files to TIFF and the processing programme I'm using can't cope with the huge TIFF files and crashes! I could use GIMP to process..... but.... ok no buts...... I'll give it a try & post the result.

    Thanks Declan, I've never noticed so much colour variation in the Mares before! Maybe it's the new scope? Yep, this hobby is about mastering new techniques, it's great isn't it? I have been pushed way out of my comfort zone and just love it! Enjoy your hols.
