Hi Folks,

 

I mostly rendered at 23x/inch but I did bump the magnification  considerably to rough the crater patterns.

13mm Questar Erfle and 26mm Questar Kellner and 1.6x internal barlow.

When barlow engaged sometime the eyepiece housings were twisted and elevate to provide more power.

V/R,
Matt

Matt,

 

Holy Cow, I am so surprised to here that you are recovering from a heart transplant.

It is great to know you are alive. May your recovery be complete. So many of the folks from the early years have 

disappeared and it is anyone's guess what happened to them. Others we know have passed on.

 

Frank :)

Matt,

 

I knew you had health issues but I had no idea they were that serious.  Hope you are well on your way to recovery.  Sketching Luna and posting here will be good rehab.  flowerred.gif
