Moon, 7.45 to 8.50pm, Friday

Recommended Posts

Waxing crescent, about 35%.  8SE out, waiting.  

42mm Revelation, x48 - clear, white, bluish background.

36mm Baader Aspheric, x56 - ditto.

30mm ES 82 deg, x68 - more mag, but not as white, plus Ring of Fire effect.  Undoubtedly  good EP, but perhaps not so for lunar?

30mm Revelation, x68 - clearer, cleaner, no RoF.

24mm UWA Meade, x85 - again, less clean, RoF, but better fine detail.

20mm UWA Meade, x102 - ditto, with less RoF.

Theophilus and Cyrillus were most noticeable, with only slight shadow to eastern walls.  8.25 - very good detail, not too bright.

Tried x339 for fun - washed out.  Pulled back to x203 - good, wobbly; x145 - clearer, steadier, very nice.  Two peaks/mountains plus a smaller one in Cyrillus very clear, plus the peardrop crater (Cyrillus A) in the floor to the west.

Well that's phase one.  There's still a lot of blue up there, so I'm hoping to see stars soon for the first time in about a month!

Doug.
