Yule Moon

A beautiful sight on Wednesday of the Yule Moon with Jupiter sitting just 1 degree from it on a cold, crisp night. As the Moon was in the East, I cannot see it properly from my back garden, so took some images through my window. Though this is not ideal, I was quite surprised at the results.

This image taken using the Philips Toucam Pro II webcam with the Skywatcher 80ED Pro. 100 frames stacked in registax with the colour saturation turned up to show the subtle colours.

I also managed to image Jupiter even though it was very close to the bright Moon. For this I used my Philips Toucam Pro II webcam with just 200 frames of AVI and then stacked in Registax.
