    Default Greenish color through TV Powermate 2X



    I took about 200 images of the full moon last night through my new TV Powermate 2X and prime focus. I haven't had time to process them yet but I did open the raw files and noticed that all the moon images had a greenish color to them. I have taken images through my scope of the moon previously without the TV 2X and did not have problems with the color.

    Is this greenish color normal when imaging through the TV Powermate 2X? I am also wondering if it is easy to correct this in the processing? I do not like to turn my moon images to black-white. Will an auto "white balance" or something similar remove the green color?

    No worries, I just opened the files on another monitor and they look less green.

    I was going to suggest Green Cheese - my grandfather used to tell me that's what the Moon was made of

    Seriously, I was going to suggest that you post one of the images, glad you got it worked out. Different monitors can be a pain sometimes.
