Up at 2.30 am, in observatory to shelter from the worst of Storm Brendan with the SW 120ED on Ercole mount,  The photo is a single frame taken with  the Olympus E-M5 Mk11, 3.19 am, 1/320 sec at 400 asa. Crops are taken from the same frame.

It was a bit windy even in the observatory, but at least the rain had passed through by then.  The seeing was not very good, but  I persisted as Janssen was particularly well placed on the terminator.  After taking some pics, had a visual session until 4 am when the cloud started to increase again until the Moon was mostly obscured.  At times I could see a wealth of detail using the binoviewer, x150 (24mm Orthos) and x214 (16.8 Orthos) in Janssen.  Just a shame the seeing wasn't better as I had to use the lower power most of the time.  Great detail non the less, and as usual better than the photos show.
