A couple of "rarer" Lunar targets for me.

Recommended Posts

I have been meaning to catch Hesiodus A and Dionysius dark rays for a quite a while. Very pleased with these images. Hesiodus A is a very curious crater, with an odd doughnut appearance. The dark rays of Dionysius are most visible when the Sun is high and they come out quite well.

Captured with my C9.25, Asi290mm, Astronomik 642 filter. Stacked the best 15% of 5,000 frames captured.

Hesiodus A, my favourite concentric crater, stands out so well in the first image! And Dionysius looks wonderfully spiky with its rays.

Thanks for sharing two great images!
