Some beautiful lunar detail there Mike. Do you think the 81% shot has greater detail than the previous shot? If yes what are your thoughts on why?

mike - I think that about 80% is my favourite moon phase - loads of detail in that one (and it looks great in Large Size)
clk230 - wonderful colours and details for just 3 mins.

    Thanks CLK. Yes, the 81% shows more detail.

    The factors that make any two moon shots better or worse in comparison are SO many! haha. As it happens both were taken with the same set-up. Camera shake is a big variable - even a tiny waft of air moving has an effect. Manually focusing with my gear is tricky - and often it drifts off while I am shooting. But, by far the biggest factor, is seeing. It changes by the second. And the difference between one frame and the next can be a lot, not just day to day! So, no, I don't really have any thoughts about why last nights has perhaps more detail than the previous - I mostly put differences down to luck with seeing.

    Thanks Mike - I have had good luck with the 80ish moons. My own favourite phases are in the 30-40 % range, but for anything over 50, yes there are lots of great features that come visible around 80% and it is my next best choice. (also the last I usually bother trying to shoot as it grows!) hehe

    Jupiter with Europa & Io



    Just really showing what is possible with Minolta 500mm reflex (plus Kenko 1.4x stacked with Kenko 2.0x) - on Sony A7M3 (via LA-EA3). Settings were 1/20s SS, approx f22, iso 800. I had to turn on APS-C mode plus Clear-Image zoom at 1.5x to at least get something discernable in the viewfinder that I could focus on.

    But not sure whether this is allowed on Dyxum as in my eyes not strictly photography! - as was 40 seconds of video at 24fps - resulting in approx 1000 images, processed in Pipp, then AS!2 then registax.

    As jupiter is low in the horizon (13deg) at my northerly location there is lots of atmospheric dispersion. This results in the color fringing which I couldn't all get rid of with registax. For where I am, Jupiter's altitude is only meant to get better (higher) by 2023!

    Didn't really know what to expect as first attempt at Jupiter but pretty happy to see some features - though the spot was hiding round the back at the time :)

    Unfortunately I managed to chop off the other 2 (galilean) moons somehow in processing.

    C&C welcome :)
