Subject: Samples to your guest lunar astrophotography collecti Sent: Thursday, January 3, 2002 23:39:29 From: Mikko.Syrjasuo@fmi.fi (Mikko Syrjasuo) Greetings from Finland and thanks for maintaining your ETX-site! Here are some not too bad shots I captured with my ETX-70 around Christmas. I used Pentax Optio digital camera and eyepiece projection through Meade UWA 6.7mm (superb eyepiece, btw). Images were cropped, resampled and ran through some Van Cittert deconvolution and a touch of unsharp masking. The results depend on your monitor settings... As a sidenote: fresh batteries seem to last about half an hour in -25..-30C (-13..-22F) outside temperature. Cheers, Mikko Syrjsuo
