From Nicollet To Maurolycus

Recommended Posts

It has been quite a while since I have posted on this forum - hopeless weather not withstanding! The attached image was captured in early February during  a period of short-lived (aren't they always lol!) reasonable conditions with a waxing, just over 8.5 day old moon, displaying its wares! From the Rupes Recta (Straight Wall) and crater Nicollet at the top to  crater Maurolycus at the bottom the image was captured using a Celestron C8 SCT and a ZWO 290MM camera through Baader longpass filter. The "Hell" label is a little misplaced  and of course refers to the crater above it to thr left.......!!  Thanks for looking and best regards.

Very impressive, I've just looked at the full scale image and very nice it is too. Well done.
