Took this picture from my deck in the heart of NYC, shooting over other townhouses with a near-full moon. 


Equipment:  8" LX90 ACF, ZWO ASI 120M camera using FireCapture, stacked with Autostackert and Registax for wavelet processing.  2-minute exposure, kept 50% of the frames.


Clear skies!

Hi Stan!


Thanks for the image. :)  I can definitely see the darker band on the planet itself that I have been seeing with my EclipseView 114.  I have also been wondering if I was seeing a bit of the planet's shadow on the rings in the upper right.


Considering your latitude, elevation, light pollution, full moon, and who knows what else getting in your way, I am thinking you did a really nice job.  Lots of different shades of grey picked up...nice!

Good picture Stan.  Being 30 miles north of you, I know the skies have been difficult lately.
