On vacation many moons ago, I pointed my first digital astronomy camera towards Scorpius and the only hole in an otherwise overcast sky. No stars where visible to the naked eye, but to the camera… it seemed like magic.
captain-enrique-c said: Dear Alan, I live in Santiago, Chile and I am an amateur astronomer apprentice, a friend of mine sent me a video where you're giving a talk and showing your pictures of the Sun, Moon and Jupiter, Your photos are spectacular, I would like to know which is the camera model and what is the program you process videos, Many thanks.
If you visit this page you will find a photograph of my imaging set-up with information below on the cameras and equipment that I use. I process my images on a Mac and unfortunately, the software I use for capture and stacking is no longer available. There are many using programs on a PC platform, such as Registax, with good results. Best of luck with your images, and thank you very much for the note and appreciation!
A gift from a friend, this Civil War era top hat was made and sold in Buffalo sometime before 1863. It’s 7 1/4” inches high.
