Gassendi

Recommended Posts

Anyone looking at / imaging Gassendi right now? I’m looking at it through my C8. It’s wonderful. The seeing is ok, for split seconds I’m getting lots of detail with the internal rilles.

I've been looking at it with my Tak 100. Nice rilles and central peak structure. A very complex floor to this crater.

What power are you pushing? I’m at x222 with a 9mm. That’s as high as I can comfortably go.

225x - 257x occasionally to 300x. The seeing is a bit variable with the higher powers.

Yes it is a little variable at high power. But comfortable enough for over x200 and that’s great!
