Nice!  You sure brought out the rays in the first one!  In the second, those really subtle bits of color or tint are interesting.

Spiral these are real good pictures, I'm curious did you use your 10" LX 90 to take these pictures?

Sorry Rick, I just seen your post..

Yes, they all were taken with my LX90 ACF 10" and Neximage5.. The wide field shots of the moon, I used my Antares 6.3 reducer and 2x binning with 1280x760 resolution..

Here is my gallery if you would like to see more..Thanks

Spiral,

Thanks for sharing the URL and your posted images. FANTASTIC, very sharp, crisp images. I think you have it figured out.

Do you do any deep sky images?  

 

I think everyone should take a look at these.

 

Thank you again for sharing.

Thanks everyone..

No deep sky photography yet, but I'm working on it..I have always wanted to do DSO..I have a vintage, single arm, Celestron C5 silver tube that I plan on buying an AVX mount for..The mount works when it wants to..It freezes up sometimes..With a reducer,Canon T3I and an AVX mount, I should be able to get some decent shots..

 

I fooled around with a film camera some 20 years ago on Orion..I still have the pic. :D .I had a very cheap clock drive EQ mount..It just didn't work well for long exposure..

The main reason I bought the LX90 was for visual and to do planetary photography..With Meade's history , I was a little worried about purchasing one..And I can honestly say, I have not one regret..The build quality is impressive, the optics are razor sharp and it has worked flawless..Even updating the handset...And, I'm more than pleased with the images it produces..I can't wait until I can get a better planetary camera..It will probably be a ZWO..

 

I would recommend the LX90 line to anyone..With the GPS and Meade's alignment procedure, its just so easy to set up and get down to business.. :D

Great work, just amazing crisp contrast..

 

Was your astrophotography at prime focus? for the moon and for the two planets?
