I spent a couple of hours with other members of the Raleigh Astronomy Club last night, trying out socially distant observing where by we set up our respective telescopes in our own yards and shared views, observations and general chatting via Zoom. Here are few of the EAA (electronically assisted astronomy) views I shared. Each picture is just a snap shot of what I saw on my computer monitor after only a few minutes. There is no post processing (editing or enhancements) other than cropping the images
The views where from my front yard, facing North, in some light polluted skies (not like NYC but not dark by any stretch of the imagination). I’m still working to reducing the noise (graininess) of the images by trying to optimize the exposure to gain settings. I still have work to do.
