Lunar Imaging and Widefield Imaging Talks

Last night I did a quick couple of talks at the Cambridge Astronomy Association on lunar imaging and widefield imaging using a Geoptik CCD to lens adaptor.

The lunar imaging talk covered the top 10 tips when lunar imaging, a demo of stacking a lunar video using Autostakkert and Registax. I then also talked about how to complete a lunar mosaic by using Photomerge in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements or in the free Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE).

The widefield imaging talk concentrated on my use of the Geoptik adaptor, but I also introduced the other Canon and Nikon lens adaptors that are on the market. I then mentioned filters, backfocus and focusing. I finished up showing some Ha example images that I have taken.
