Lunar V close up 22_02_18

Recommended Posts

Just messing with some more data I got from imaging the moon on Thursday 22nd February, and in the attached image below I’ve cropped in closer to the area around the Lunar V feauture, which shows quite a lot of detail with my early attempts with my ZWO ASI 120 MC camera, attached to my Celestron Omni 120mm f8.3 ‘frac. Processed through Registax, touched up in PS, and then on iPad Pro photo app Aviary also.

Very nice. Hyginus Rille showing well in that one.

Thanks Stu. Yes, some smaller rilles can be seen to the south/south-west below Hyginus Rille itself too. Very pleased with the little ZWO camera so far. Hoping for some more shots of the moon tonight too. :)

Thanks. Yes, surprised with the level of detail captured. Seeing was very steady for a change. :)

      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’??
