Tycho.png



One of a few shots of Tycho that were ok. One of the newest formations on the surface (in terms of millions of years), it is one of the brighter objects to image. at 52KM its not the largest of course, but it has made quite an impact on our local neighbour. The crater is starting point of the largest ray system on the surface, and is easily seen in binoculars. This image was captured on the 28th December at 18:31:56 and comprised of a single capture of 3080 frames, of which only 285 were used in the stack. It was captured using a ZWO174mm camera (with a 642IRBP filter), and a televise x2 barlow). This was mounted on a Celestron Edge1100HD, in turn held on a Celestron CGEMDX mount.
