Hello,

This is the best image of Copernicus Crater I captured last night. Afocally through-the-eyepiece with my point and shoot camera in video mode with a Tele Vue 2X barlow and ~50/150 frames stacked (the video couldn't be too long because I don't have an equatorial mount, my dob just stays put).
