Imaging with a Meade LPI imager
Posted 22 January 2014 - 03:35 PM
I'm very new to this astro imaging lark, and have purchased a Meade LPI imager.
It's great for planets and such, but when it comes to the moon I can only get part of the sphere.
Is there a way to reduce the image size to fit the whole frame?

Make sue your overlap area is big enough to recognize where they should meet up...
Based on your scope, you may have to use 2 to 4 images to do it -- the LPI isn't a very big chip

An extension tube would only increase your F-ratio, giving you an even smaller Field Of View.

Many thanks again....
