On the morning of October 14 the sky in Germany was clear and the seeing was between average and good. I wanted to test the new release of my MoonPanoramaMaker software, so I set up my telescope in the garden. In fully automatic mode the 30 videos for a high-res panorama were captured. Here is a "thumbnail picture" of the panorama:

You find the panorama in full resolution here. Make sure to view the picture at 100% zoom.

The inidividual video files were taken with an ASI120MM-S camera through a 685nm red filter and my C11 telescope. If you are interested in the technical details, you can see here two pictures of my setup. First the whole thing:

And then a closeup of my laptop with all the necessary software running:

      Dear all,
      yesterday evening, I started observing the moon and sketching crater Copernicus even 15min before sunset. The contrast on the moon wasn't perfect yet, but on the other hand the contrast on the sketching paper was better - no need for LED.  Copernicus with its prominent ray system is wonderfully appearing on the full moon but this time I just concentrated on the 96km crater itself:

      Telescope: Celestron NexStar 127SLT
      Eyepiece: ExploreScientific 6.7mm/82°
      Date & TIme: June 12th, 2019 / 2130-2230 CEST
      Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
      Technique: Koh-i-Noor chalk and charcoal pens on black sketching paper
      Size: appr. 30x30cm
      Looking in my filed skeches, I figured out that I have visited Copernicus five years ago. Here's a comparison of the two sketches showing some changes in technique:

      Clear skies!

      Posting in this forum after too long!
      One of the first attempts at taking photos of the moon.
      All photos taken using skywatcher 90mm refractor with eq2 mount, Nikon DSLR and 2x Barlow here and there.
      No exposure.
      Basic editing in cellphone.
      Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!
