Good morning,

 

I share some of the proficous result of the night of feb 17. The jet stream decided to rest upon Italy, and we've finally had a couple of quite calm nights.

I used for all the pics my usual setup: C8EdgeHD, plus ASI174MM, Barlow apo 2x and an Astronomik Green filter.

Plato's craterlets and Rima Gassendi look especially brilliant, Vinny!

Great framing and I guess expert timing and execution. Very pleasant viewing!
