Moon and Jupiter conjunction at Orion Store
Details
Date Taken: 01/21/2013
Photographer: Jason K.
Location: Green Mountain, NC
Telescope: Orion ED80 80mm f/7.5 Apochromatic Refractor Telescope
Other Mount: CGEM
Other Camera: Canon 300D (modified with Baader UV/IR filter)
Processing: Photoshop
Exposure: 4 x 1/500
Other Equipment Used: Hutech IDAS LPS filter
Notes: This image is a stack of 4 iso400 1/500th images. Cropped to make subjects larger for submission. Taken under breezy skies with the jet-stream overhead. Even the Jovian bands are visible in the full-size 8 and 16bit versions (just barely, but visible, indeed!). I am very happy with this little 80mm refractor. Barely perceptable CA on very bright stars (after 300s exposure!) - no CA with visual or short exposures, using 40mm and 20mm 70deg FoV Explore Scientific eyepieces. Can't wait to try some tricolor with this scope!
