Nice capture! Looking very sharp. Which EP did you use?

Excellent shot! What does the +A11 mean?

The "+A11" text marks the approximate landing location of Apollo 11.

The EP was actually the 25mm Elux Plossl that came with the 6SE originally. Using the camera's 5X optical zoom gives a photo that approximates the same image I see visually with my Orion Expanse 20mm (75X).

Hmmm....

I don't remember seeing a huge yellow '+A11' when I last looked at the Moon.

Have they just put it up or have they only just switched it on?

Seriously, a great photo chemist

You can now safely ignore my post in the other thread

Well if he hadn't put that "+" there we could have seen the flag, now we'll just have to use our imaginations.

Seriously, very nice photo Chemist!
