Those are great Richard. I simply love the moon around first quarter -- a different show along the terminator every night!

Thanks, Robert! It's definitely my favorite lunar scope that I've owned. It's renewed my interest in the Moon, for sure.

A really sweet set of images Richard!! Looks like its a labor of love for you! I especially like your Apennines shot, very dramatic! You should sell your Neximage 5 and get an ASI120MM! :cool:

keep em comin!

all the best

Thanks, Mike! I'm trying to stick with the OSC mode for now...reluctant to start investing in filters and wheels and would need to improve tracking, etc, etc. I definitely have my eye on a ASI camera, fer shure.
