Extraordinary 'phone' shots of the lunar surface: could create a whole new website (perhaps, like APOD, OPOD or LPOD) become a 'PMD' - Phone Moon of the Day flowerred.gif

Thank you, rkelly8493, for the views shown here - especially Copernicus and the environs of Plato - and in the next post you made that included a fine shot of Clavius.  It brought back vivid memories of the fine time I had last week, when the atmosphere permitted the Pronto and a 2.4mm HR to provide some unreal views of the Moon.

This one’s from nearly 2 years ago. My first “astrophoto”, taken with an iPhone 7.

The telescope is a Takahashi TOA 130, a beautiful and well-crafted piece!

 

Took that photo at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA in April ‘18.

By the way, lunar crater sunrise and sunset light rays occur in some of those craters, e.g., Longomontanus, Maginus, and Walther. 

 

Here's a film photo of the Maginus ray that I took in 2002.
