Hi Ricky...I'm assuming we'll start around 7-30 as normal. Cheers, Paul.

Hi Ricky...looks like this months meeting is going to be on friday night rather than Christmas eve. I gather that Doug Sharp is going to be talking about his recent astrophotos. Cheers, Paul.


Thanks Paul will see you on Friday night - do you know what time? Cheers Ricky

Hi Ricky, Sorry I didn't get back to you - I was working night shifts last week and didn't get to HERAS last monday. I will be at the next BLAS meeting, although I'm not certain whether the meeting will be brought forwards to friday 21st, to avoid meeting on christmas eve. You'll have to check with George on 665174 to make sure you get the right night....bring a memory stick so that you can take home some Jupiter AVI to practice stacking in registax...each file is about 500Mb, so bring a big stick!

This is excellent...what you might want to try now, is taking enough photos to cover the moon completely - overlap by about 1/3 of a frame - then stitch the images together using either the Canon photostich software, photoshop, or the free program Hugin (google hugin to download) Have a look at the image I've posted, done with a 300D and 8" Dob to see the possibilities. Use the exposure meter to ensure that the brightest parts of the moon are not overexposed, then keep the same settings for the rest of the mozaic images. With a bit of patience, I think ypu'll be well pleased with the result.
Cheers,
Paul.
