  1. An image of the mighty Clavius. One of the larger craters at 225KM in diameter. A very impressive walled plain that contains an arc of addition craters diminishing is size from 55KM (Rutherford) down to 12KM (Clavius J). Moretus is further towards the pole, and is around 114KM. It has a great central peak rising to 2700m) and numerous terraces. The tops of other craters can be seen towards the horizon, and the south lunar pole. Captured with a ZWO174mm (using a 642IRBP filter), on a Celeron Edge1100HD and CGEMDX mount. Image capture was via OACapture, stacked in Autostakkert2, Sharpened in Registax, finished in photoshop. This is an inverted image, as I find I can make out more detail this way. Full Size viewable on Flickr
  2. Here's some F30 mosaics from this mornings session at.. some ridiculous hour that not many people know exists. F30 is as far as I can push my scope using my Televue 3x barlow. Its not often the seeing is good enough to make it happen using only an 8 inch aperture scope either. All shot through a red filter. Can't do much more to reduce the noise in these when working at this focal length, its a by product of the lack of aperture. First up is a 6 pane mosaic of Moretus Followed by a 13 pane mosaic of Plato and surrounding region And then a 5 pane mosaic of Copernicus and finally a quick shot of Tycho

  4. As the clouds have come in thick and fast and lunar imaging has gone the way of the dodo for now I decided to look at some previous shots I've taken of one of my favourite targets, crater Moretus. I realised I have enough to shots to really show how libration affects this crater and the lunar limb. This is the result:
