Dusky Moon + close ups 29-9-17 mosaic added.

Recommended Posts

 taken around 7.30pm. caught a few moon shots lastnight, seeing wasn't the best, very hazey and fazing a bit , but it still looked nice just hanging there in space.

Copernicus looked very nice in shadow, think its the only shot ive got with so much shadow.

thanks for looking and I hope you all have clear.  charl.





some close ups, not the best with the seeing.

Brilliant, Charl. Copernicus with shadow is awesome. Plato and Tycho jump out, too. We got a supermoon coming in December. Look out (or up)!


Clear skies,
