First Lunar images of 2016 - 22nd Jan

Recommended Posts

In fact first lunar images for many, many months.


conditions not ideal - seeing was poor I'd rate it on 2-3 out of 5 at best and of course the Moon was 98% full - it did make imaging the terminator quite challenging.


'Nuff said - here's a few pics - C11 @ f10 DFK21AU camera 60fps @ approx 1/75ths' Each pic is best 10% of 3600 frames stacked in AS!2 and sharpened in Registax & Photoshop. No darks, bias or flats - I'm still in the process of setting up the scope - so these can be considered as 'experimental' images. I would have loved to have gone with  the x2 Barlow, but seeing was not good enough.

Next challenge - is to mosaic the terminator

      No extraordinary images for this lunation, because of the turbulence and the use of infrared filters.
      Here are some images of the 24th, I am working on those of the 25th which will be of the same style.
      Clear skies.

      Just a quick enquiry ... was strolling the lunar surface on Iroc and bumped into this area of florescence on the lunar surface.

      Any thoughts anyone? (Co-ordinates at bottom of screenshot if you want to get better definition from original website).
      Was struggling to see clear heavy impact crater that would account for the wide spread of surface debris?
      Didn't think it was image flare - not expert on that so could be wrong - but noticed on RHS there appears to be traces of surface debris scatter?
      It almost seems like someone threw a very low velocity ‘flour bomb’ at the surface of the Moon?🤨
      Have there been mineral studies done on these areas of exceptional lunar florescence? ... I tapped the phrase into SGL’s Search ... but surprisingly it came up with ‘no results’??
