Daylight Moon 27th March

Recommended Posts

This month's lunar crescent has so far been clouded out for me, but managed to catch yesterday's fat crescent in a clear interlude during the late afternoon, in broad daylight.  Rubbish seeing, but I think it turned out not too bad considering.

16" F/4.5 reflector and ASI 183MM with Proplanet 807 IR filter.  25% of 2000 frames.  Three pane mosaic.

Plus some selective enlargements from the main image.

Thanks for looking.

Well, if you can get that level of detail with 'rubbish' seeing, I'd love to see what you could get with good seeing 😉  Very nice, thanks for sharing.

Hello, thank you for sharing Roy, no seeing here other than clouds and rains! Your images give a very spheric sensation, with well defined relief.

Thank you - I get plenty of cloud and rain here too. In fact these images we made in a short time of clear sky between clouds. And in daylight. We have to make the most of these small windows. Glad you like the images.
