A bevy of lunar images
Posted 16 April 2014 - 12:38 PM
Its been a long time since I've last posted lunar images. I got a new PGR Grasshopper 3 camera but my laptop was too slow to keep up to the data flow so I had to get a new one and its working fine!
All images done with my 18" Starmaster dob (driven) Carl Zambuto primary, Zeiss Abbe 3X's barlow, R/IR filter, captured with Firecapture stacked with AS2! and Avisstack2
7-8/10 seein, perfect transparency, 500-600 frames stacked out of 3300 collected. Image scale is 0.13" per pixel
Lacus Mortis (high sun view)
A famous "Trio"
Posidonius (high sun angle view)
Promontorum Archerusia in Mare Serenitatus
And in my opinion saving the best for last Hadley rille/Appeninne range
And just to be annoying heres the view at sunset from my imaging spot (5700') overlooking the Pacific some 45km to the west
hope you enjoy them!!

I was lucky to have some good seeing, perhaps Chuck will comment further on a couple of these shots

One word : FANTASTIC !
The best captures I have ever seen, really.

Apennins Mons and Alpes Vallis are fantastics ! The rest is excellent.
You should post those pictures on astrobin too.
I had good captures of the moon with my C6 last month but far far far away from you.
Great great job.
