Celestron C11 - First (Moon) light


Recommended Posts

Having recently acquired a C11 I managed to grab a few shots of the Moon recently after ending a session on Mars.  This was the first time I have had the opportunity to observe the Moon through this scope and despite only being around 20 degrees above the horizon at the time the results were surprising.  I especially like shooting over the south pole to try and catch the mountains on the limb and for the first time I have managed to record some subtle shading on the distant mountains themselves.

I am looking forward to seeing what I can get out of this scope  over the winter when compared to the 8" Edge HD I have been using for years .
