Equipment10-inch Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain and Philips Vesta PCVC675k webcam
DescriptionFrames from several avi files were combined with Registax and resulted 9 images of different lunar regions which were then put together with the aid of iMerge. The final mosaic was processed with Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro and reduced about 60%. My intention was to show in only one picture, the entire mountain chains (Apenninus, Caucasus and Alpes) around Mare Imbrium, with a good amount of details.

EquipmentMeade 10"LX200 w/ web cam
DescriptionThe skies having thwarted my attempt to create a movie of the of the transiting of Io and Europa across the face of Jupiter did however allow me two 8 min stretches of time separated by one hour to create this stereo image. Let your eyes relax and focus on the image in the middle (if you can); notice that motion in one direction creates the effect of lifting of the screen (moons and shadows) while the other appears depressed (great red spot). This technique works great on the moon as well, allow one hour between shots for parallax.
LocationJohnson Co., KS, USA
EquipmentThis is a 1 minute exposure with a 50mm lens. First, the sign was rendered with a flash @ 1/250th sec. at f/16, then focus shifted to infinity and lens opened up to f/2.8 for the guided portion.
DescriptionHere is the moon and Venus above Evening Star Road. The reddish ghosting of the letters is due to car headlights briefly illumunating the shifted letters.
