I haven't captured any lunar data in ages and with the daytime being so nice here yesterday I hoped for a nice clear evening so I could get back into it. Also, I wanted to test the D7000 as a Lunar imaging camera which I hadn't done yet.

At about 9pm the skies were clear so I setup and waited for the scope to cool. An hour later I was raring to go and what do you know, there was a thin layer of hazy cloud.

I went ahead and captured some data anyway and here are the results. Usual process (although I had issues with that as the latest MacOS update killed my windows virtual machine so it took about 5hrs to put that right so I could align and stack!)

I hoped to add a Barlow to get higher resolution data, but by the time I'd captured this lot the clouds were coming in.
