Lunar images – September 9, 2017

Scroll down to content

My first lunar session with the ASI 1600MM camera and red filter on the Moon. I did have a “first light” with this camera at the beginning of the year, but that was done with the 35nm H-alpha filter instead of the red one (which has a much wider bandwidth). This time the seeing was mostly poor, with the Moon at around 45 degrees of altitude. Nevertheless, some nice details are present. Hope to have better luck next time with this setup.
