A nice image. I really like the tones. Contrast is not too strong. For a C9.25 I believe maybe some more sharpness and detail might be possible. Though that depends a lot on seeing and a bit on processing.

Anyway, a nice image. Well done.

Wouter.

Thanks Wouter. I agree, the scope can do better but I shot these files off while waiting for cool down. Always difficult to know how far to take sharpening  I think. Trevor

Very nice image, Extremely nice considering the ongoing acclimation of the scope ?

Thursday evening I spent quite a bit of time looking at the same area. My photos are nothing like yours, my 8" dob and Canon with single images.

What drew my interest is the area of Mt. Hadley being the Apollo 15 landing sight. 

Reading of their hopes with picking out sites, and remembering it was the early 70's, I'm really impressed.

Good image. I used my 9.25 SCT and now I have a 14" Meade for lunar work. I too live in Norfolk, the seeing here is often quite poor so I can sympathise with Trevor.

Very rarely do we get a 4 and almost never a 5 on the Damian Peach scale for planetary or Lunar imaging.

It's an area you can spend hours just looking at all the detail.
