Copernicus rays – January 22, 2016

Scroll down to content

The following image shows the complex ray systems of the lunar craters Copernicus and Kepler. The negative image shows the extent of these systems a little better.

The acquisition was done with the 14inch Newtonian and ASI 174MM camera under very poor seeing conditions at -16 degrees Celsius and a lot of fog. The final image is a true color one, with color data from RGB filters.
