Post your favourite close up lunar crater shot..........

Recommended Posts

As the title says really, lets see your favourite pic you've taken of a lunar crater (name of crater would also be good).

I have an alternative motive for this thread. I'd like to practice sketching while we have these light cloudy evenings so rather than scour the web for pics I thought it would be good to see what the SGLers can produce. :hello2:

Any takers?

My closest using me basic equipment probably be this not sure if used barlow or 1.5 x

from last year this one is clavius crater

Think i used wii cam for imaging for that pic no stacking or nothing just simple snap shot

and i know if used barlow lens it be lot closer and darker.

i now use avi recording when i do me astro imaging :) and get images from stacking software.

Hi all this was my 1st go at a close up of a crater, of course it had to be plato. It was captured early 2011 with my spc 880, 2x barlow attached to my 127 mak, not the sharpest images and under exsposed but i was happy with it as a 1st go.

Regards

Ben

Some great images here. Shame I can't see all of them due to new forum change but I'm sure that will get fixed soon.

Keep them coming! :)

This would be my favourite (and closest) shot I've ever taken. It's a 2 pane mosaic of craters Theophilus and Cyrillus taken through a 3x Televue barlow on 29th February 2012.

This is not one of the best crater images you are likely to see but it's a favourite because it's the one in which i discovered the man in the moons hideout! :grin:
