Clavius & Moretus - Heading to the South Lunar pole

Recommended Posts

An image of the mighty Clavius. One of the larger craters at 225KM in diameter. A very impressive walled plain that contains an arc of addition craters diminishing is size from 55KM (Rutherford) down to 12KM (Clavius J). Moretus is further towards the pole, and is around 114KM. It has a great central peak rising to 2700m) and numerous terraces. The tops of other craters can be seen towards the horizon, and the south lunar pole.  Captured with a ZWO174mm (using a 642IRBP filter), on a Celeron Edge1100HD and CGEMDX mount. Image capture was via OACapture, stacked in Autostakkert2, Sharpened in Registax, finished in photoshop. This is an inverted image, as I find I can make out more detail this way.

      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!

      No exposure.
      Basic editing in cellphone.
      Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!

      Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold. 

      7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little.
      Camera: Canon 600D
      Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
      ISO: 800
      Shutter speed: 1/400s
