Hi,

included some images of April 12th.

One image of Vallis Alpes, witht he large craters Arsitoteles and Eudoxus.

Rima Hyginus, with lower in the image Triesnecker and Rimae Triesneckes to the right of it.

The Apennines. A large mountain range. This is a two panel mosaic.

and last byt not least a high res image of the lunar terminator from the Large crater Ptolemaeus all the way to the South pole.

All images made using CFF CC300 f/20 and asi 174MM at prime focus. An Astronomik proplanet 807 filter was used to stabilize seeing.

Enjoy the images, and feel free to share your toughts, comments etc. All images are also visible on my Astrobin page.

      Hello,
      I have been doing a lot of research on this and I am reading a lot of contradictory information. I have an Orion Sirius Mount, with an ED80 and T3i for imaging, and ST80 with ASI120MM for guiding. I am trying to get prepared for the colder weather currently. Now, I have read that everything should be fine, I can keep my whole setup in my garage in freezing temperatures and I won't have much cooldown time when getting set up. I don't use the hand controller anymore, and I have read that the display stops working on it in cold weather anyways. I also have an AC adapter for my camera so I don't have to worry about short battery life. I read that the lube in the Sirius will harden in freezing temperatures and could cause damage to the gears. I was going to take apart my mount and re-lube everything before winter just to be safe, but is that necessary? Also, what lube should I use if that is recommended?
      Thank you in advance!
