My first blog: How i capture Moon.

English Version. ITA | ENG

Waxing Gibbous Moon

Welcome to my first blog!

New website in WordPress, so i can stay so close with you and show you also my news in this blog, from Astro to my Poems or my Thoughts. I hope you like it.

I want start to show you last photo that i captured to the Moon ( in attachment, linked to my Flickr ).

Here the setup and data info. that  used to capture it:


Primaluce Lab Airy, APO ED doublet, 80/500 (f6.5) | Newton – EQ6 Pro | Barlow Skywatcher APO 2″ (2x).


Canon EOS 550D. 30% of best frames.

Lights: 205 x 1/50 sec | ISO 100.

Notes: Stacking and wavelets (Registax), with no saturation, clouds.

Registax | Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Usually i capture about 200 photos in Raw mode (in high resolution) with reflex camera through a telescope (in this case 80/500 mm APO doublet  telescope) then with Photoshop i convert all 200 raw pics from “.CR2” to “.jpg” form ( yes some data will be lost, but do not worry, i use convertation because the “.tiff” one, its huge file and 200 photos with Registax in high res. its so long to elaborate and some time Registax go in crash), then i put all converted images in Registax programm, and i start to alignment and stacking, and at the end i use “Wavelet” option to stand out the surface details. Generaly i use only two layer ( the first two i mean ).

Obviously, there are some setting to set as well, like focus ( and also you must to control that when you are in right focus your focuser are stopped as well ), like stable mount ( motorized mount) with motorized chasing powered on and done polar alignment. For capture i use also remote control for click and shoot in remote mode ( to avoid the vibration).

Thanks for reading, and i’m sorry for my bad English.

Remember to Live,
Life is Beautiful.
