not the best of nights for moon imaging for me ,took 200 frames and could only use 14 frames due to cloud being in nearly every shot.so a very soft looking moon. taken with ed80,2xed barlow,450d,from obsy room window. thanks for looking clear skys,charl. ps before the moon rose the seeing was very good, i saw the orion neb in near full daylight 6pm thats a first for me in over 40years of skywatching, heres a single frame taken on full auto with my sony alpha.56cef3d044958_moon24-2-16..thumb.png.8be56cef45089966_moon24-2-16.invert.thumb.p_DSC2289.thumb.JPG.245375bdc0e8d53b0fe92

Nice pics..you did better than me, I drove to a dark site to do a reccie and take some pics with my camera and tripod. Misplaced (a kind way of saying my short term memory loss is playing havoc!) the tripod quick release plate so had to abort the trip and head home... by which time (now reunited with quick release plate) the Moon was well up and all thoughts of imaging were far, far away. :glasses12:

      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’??
