Copernicus, Clavius and Tycho craters (600 m/pixel)


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I was at a bit of a loss of what to do during the day today and noticed that the moon was out and thought I'd have a go with double-stacked barlows and an IR-pass filter to see if I could get enough contrast during the day time.

Considering the low-ish aperture of my scope (130 mm) and the dreadful seeing I don't thing it turned out too badly...







When looking up the details on some of the smaller craters in the Copernicus shot I realised that the image gives just 600 m / pixel! I don't believe I can pick out features that size with this aperture though...

Cheers for looking,
