A session of HR moon observations with a C14 part II
Thanks for looking and enjoy watching.

 

1) A flight over our Insularum in full sunlight.
Top left in the well-known crater Copernicus and to the right Stadius.
Under Copernicus see the Reinhold crater (48 km) with a beautiful crater wall.

Date 26-2-2018
Telescope C14, red filter, 3 degree dispersion prism and Basler Ace 1920
Enschede Netherlands.

 

2) Crater Copernicus is, I think, one of the most beautiful impact craters with terraced crater walls. A lot has already been said and researched about the Copernicus crater, so I am not going to talk about this.

But there is more to see on this observation.
Above Copernicus you have a mountain chain Montes Carpatus there are two craters Draper (8.8 km) and Draper C. On the left of the two craters lies Draper A (3 km). What is quite unique about this observation is that you clearly see a very fine rillensyteen (left of Draper A). These fine shivers are difficult to perceive, as a result of which earthly observations are difficult to see. Partly because the shot just at the right moment is taken, it is clearly visible in this observation.
In the top right you see crater Eratosthenes (58 km) and ghost crater Stadius.
Below left (at the terminator) see one of the most famous Domes Hortensius.

3) Observation of Mare Frigoris.
A flight over the moon landscape.
It is not in order to observe the back of the moon, so the same moon areas often appear on the sensitive chip. Is that a problem? Not for me because I always find it fascinating even though you have often seen the area. Enjoy watching.

4) It is the known area on the southern moon.

5) The southern hemisphere of the moon has a lot to offer.
Take a hop jump in the small and medium sized craters.
In the top left we see crater Frabicius and Janssen with his famous rill that can be observed even better with a young moon.
Right on the edge in the middle crater Maurolycus (114 km) it a central mountain in the middle.
Just above Maurolycus crater Barocius (82km). Under Maurolycus crater Gemma Frisius (88km)
In the middle Riccius (71 km) with Riccius E (22 km).
At the bottom left corner of the corner, Piccolomini (88 km) also has a beautiful central mountain.

How can the dispersion prism help, if you use a red filter?

Hi,

 

You have the RGB atmosferic dispersion, the colors RGB shift to one another, this is already known.
If you work in separate wavelengths such as a red filter from Chroma you work between 600-700 nm.
Despite this being a short wavelength, your can have dispersion in the red light.
