Lunar X, V and L?

Recommended Posts

I took some pictures last night not realising I'd captured the X and V, but L as well?  12" Dob with Baader 17mm connected to a Canon 500D.  40th of a second at ISO100

I took a snap last night and had another look today and seem to have got some of the lunar alphabet as well !

It may just be a matter of timing.  It was a pure fluke that I took the shots when I did and possibly just as the sun was at the optimum angle.  It may never happen to me again!

I'm the same, I posted the pic to our club's FB group and another member had been away with the Macc Astro crowd and had the V and the X pointed out, so it was only when she told me what I'd captured... 

 

I think there's a few hours when they're visible.
