Moon craters – March 15, 2019

Scroll down to content

This must have been my shortest lunar imaging session ever. Almost 25 minutes, until the very fast forming clouds rolled in. No time for proper cool off for the mirror, and the seeing was quite poor also. Nothing notable in these images in terms of resolution, but the striking bright limb of Copernicus on the terminator deserves a post.

Equipment: 355mm Newton, ASI 174MM, Red filter. Seeing 5-6/10.
