After imaging Saturn, I turned the telescope to the 12-day old moon, and imaged multiple locations across its face. I used the same camera as the one used for Saturn along with everything else. I flipped through the filters and strangely enough, the view through the blue filter showed the least evidence of turbulence, so all the photos but the image of Clavius was stacked from video taken through it. The video was then processed with PIPP, Autostakert then the Registax wavelets before final adjustments in Photo Shop. For the relatively poor seeing, these results turned out a lot better than I expected. The first image is of the Aristarchus crater and plateau at lunar sunrise. The second is of the craters W. Bond and Birmingham close to the north pole. The dark region at the bottom is a portion of Mare Frigoris, or Sea of Cold.

The top picture is an image of the crater Gassendi. The bottom photo is of the crater Clavius in near infrared light.
