Telescope: Meade SC8 @ f/10, Atlas EQ-G
Camera: Canon Rebel T2i
Filter: Hutech LPS2
Exposure: 3x(100x1/100sec), ISO 1600 saved as AVI
Software: Backyard EOS, Registax 6, Panorama Maker, Photoshop

This is actually a crop of a 3-panel mosaic. This gave me enough room to rotate the field with north up and to crop image the image into a nice 64x48 aspect ratio. The number of different landforms in this image is wonderful to explore. It was also neat to catch the sun just rising across Plato. Later in the evening I had the pleasure of watching sunrise over the floor of Plato through my LightBridge 16 fitted with binoviewers. T'was a wonderful sight!

Wonderful image. Must have been an experience through the 16" with Bino's.

Thanks! I'd hate to put a number on it, but the resolution through the 16" was 'significantly' higher than shown here, though of course it came and went with the seeing. Sunrise over the floor of Plato was simply amazing. Unfortunately, it wasn't visible from where my imaging gear was set up. Oh well, there's always next month.

Have fun!
