9 August was a good night for the Moon, so I studied the region from Ptolemaeus to Arzachel at 231x. Especially Alpertragius stood out, with its oversized central mound. It has been suggested that this is a volcanic feature. Herschel too was quite prominent. Thanks for watching.
Hi all, Not had the time to image and post up recently for various reasons (mostly duet the rubbish weather!). But dragged myself out on the evening of the 25th, and I have to say it was the best decision I made that day! I must have been in a spot of really stable air...not much wind, and the transparency was pretty good. I took around 30 or so AVI's of different targets, both with and without a x2 barlow. I have had an image in mind for quite a while, but wither the phase was not right, or the weather on that particular night was poor...so its taken about 9 months to get the shot I wanted....though that is not the shot below. I thought I would test out the captures just to make sure it was worth staying out, and this was the image that came back. a x 2 image of the Straight Wall, along with Arzachel. quite a lot of detail to be seen in this one. processed in AS2, RS6, PS5....and thats it. I have the rest of the images to sift through, but the one I wanted is also looking good so will take my time with that. I will post up some others when I get round to it...worth saving some for a rainy day with our summers! Edge800 HD, AVX, ZWO120mm-s, Baader Red filter. TV x 2 barlow. Not had time to do my usual blurb, so will do a final version when I see how good the other shots of this area are. Thanks for looking
