Moon - 14.7.2021 at 22.40 - 14.7.2021 at 23.00 Järvenpää Observation number 99590

Visibility III / V

Eemil Pietilä, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I tried to shoot through my new telescope for the first time. I chose the moon as the target because I thought it was an easy target because of its size.

The end result was surprisingly good. I got the moon in the middle of the picture with the help of a star tracker, and the camera didn't shake thanks to the remote shutter release. So I got 50 accurate and steady images, which I then stacked with an app called a sequator. I did the final reading in Phtoshop.

At the same time, it was also found that 2x Barlow would not work without a sequel. Namely, the camera refused to focus with the Barlow lens.
