  7. Hello There are observations that will never be forgotten the photos are there to remind them. Friday, February 15 for the first time in months the weather forecast for astronomy are optimistic. The day before I had to work with the 807 infrared filter to fight turbulence but this time the IR 742 passes the turbulence is still there but at times there are details. It improves slowly then at 20:15 quickly the images become much better. I see the scree in Clavius D. Instantly I switch from the IR 742 to the red 610 to enjoy it. Sometimes it happens after passing a plane for a few seconds. It only lasted about twenty minutes the turbulence goes up as usual but I enjoyed it. Here are some pictures made in the evening. These are pretty much my best on these targets. I hope you like. Luc CATHALA Copernicus Pitatus Rutherfurd Clavius D Blancanus Clavius Tycho
