Crater Walther

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Crater Walther, approximately 132km × 140km in diameter and 4km in depth with complex crater rim. Seeing conditions average to good, Mandurah Western Australia. Captured on the 9th of August.

I'm quite pleased with this result as I've beaten my PB to resolve down to about 2km wide craterlets which can be seen around the central region of the crater floor even when conditions were not the best on live view.

Captured in SharpCap, stacked in AutoStakkert 3, wavelets in RegiStax 6, edited in PaintDotNet.
