First imaging session for quite a while, just couldn't resist the bright high moon.

Couple of favourites Plato and Gassendi,  C9.25 F20 QHY5L-II IR Pass filter.

Many thanks for your comments and likes guys, much appreciated.  Moon riding high again tonight, but it is Friday and a bottle of red is tempting me away....  Just  time to catch Aristarchus ...

How come some members can see the images and others can't? Is it because we are running on XP?

      Yesterday the Moon was  low in the sky (in Scorpius), but he seeing was good and allowed magnifications up to  257x.  Gassendi was the most prominent crater on the terminator. Here's a painting of the scene.
      The small Moon image (Stellarium) shows the location of Gassendi.

      Thank you for watching.

      Gassendi Crater and Surroundings
      One of the most interesting areas of the moon containing a huge array of various features. Seeing was just OK; this was the best out of a dozen or so shots. I may have gotten carried away with the labels, but the act of labeling was fun and greatly helped expand my understanding this portion of the moon. The detail in Gassendi and the area surrounding the Agatharchides craters were particularly fun to explore.

      I can't believe how long it is since I have been out with my 'scope!
      This is a quick process of 1000 frames using the best 5% processed in AS2! and then tweaked in PS CS4.
      Scope: Celestron C9.25
      Mount: Celestron CGEM
      Camera: QHY5LII colour
