High Resolution lunar images – January 26, 2018

Scroll down to content

A new session with the Moon. And another 500Gb of data to process. For now, only two results, acquired in good seeing conditions.

Equipment: 355mm F/4.5 Newton, APM Coma Barlow 2.7x, Baader 2.25x barlow, Baader Red filter, ASI 174MM. Seeing 6-7/10.

Moretus and Clavius:

Craters Maginus and Deslandres, with a large collection of smaller craters in between them:

Plato and Vallis Alpes. Note the many small craters on Plato’s floor; this is surely my best Plato image in terms of resolution…
