Hi guys dont be too hard on me as I am a newbie! I took this with a Zwo 385 mc. I was actually going to try image Uranus. But the moon had drowned out the most distant objects. I actually pointed the scope/camera at the moon more out of curiosity than anything else. I wasnt sure if the camera would handle such a large/bright object. Bear in mind that it took me about 4 weeks to realise I had to remove the lense from the camera in order for it to work on planets. What is that lense actually for apart from driving me to the point of insanity?  It should state that in the non existent manual that comes with the camera. My next project is to figure out why a red giant like Beetlejuice appears white with a red glow on its circumference. I've played with the gain and exposure and nothing seems to make a difference. But I am a newbie so I suppose I shouldn't be too hard on myself. Regal looks fine for some reason.. ill figure it out. Eventually! 

Neil

Sorry it is. If only way I could shape it. Clearly I am not the most tech savvy guy.  Apologies if the link doesn't work.

Hi guys apologies for such a long delay. I was taking a bit of a break from most internet related things. I took a couple of screen shots from the moon videos which I've attached. When i tried to stack even 10% of the frames the image didn't look good .  I need to get to a dark sky to image anything else. I must be in the most light polluted area in Dublin! The images are very small as i had to resize them to post them. I am sure there is a much better way to post images but my computer skills leave a lot to be desired.

Cheers
Neil
