Shadow Spires, and lots of 'em

Recommended Posts

I was observing in between images last night and the shadows cast off the Caucasus mountains were impressive so I captured this image as a record. Some of them are about 150km long!

I decided to capture Serenitatis as well to get a record of all the little sub 10km craters. The smallest identifiable in this image being (just about, if you squint) Posidonius W at 3.01km

1000 of 5000 frames. processed the usual way but with the addition of a gradient adjustment to enhance contrast on the terminator and emphasise those lovely shadows.

Tickets are all booked, we leave first thing tomorrow. :)

Skymax 102 and the Nikon as always (Actually the earlier daytime full disks (or should that be full quarters?) were with the frac)

T/Brush packed + Towel. :)

Meet mid Channel and OFF.

Cheers, I need to look into a lensed telescope to replace one of the Newt setups, but I've just had a couple of heavy purchases that were not totally planned for.
