Christian, nice images.  For some reason, the first image link doesn't work, but all the other images open and are very nice.

Amazing detail, Christian

 

Love the Cassini image, which appears to show geologic similarities between Cassini A (the larger crater on Cassini's floor) to that of LROC's recent view of Ryder crater on the farside.

Christian, do you have a sense of the dimensions of the smallest crater (or other feature) you were able to resolve in these amazing images?

Thanks to all smile.gif

These images were taken from the site of St Véran observatory, 2930 altitude (Alpes mountains)

 

Christian, nice images.  For some reason, the first image link doesn't work, but all the other images open and are very nice. 

Sorry for that. I made an error with a double http ... I don't knwo how to correct that.

I have not checked this. Probably close to the resolving power of the Celestron 14.

Thank you, Christian.  That photo from the Plato, Alpine Valley, Pico region is absolutely stunning!  It will keep me occupied for a period of time as I study the detail you picked up, for future reference.

Under good seeing conditions, I would say a C14 is capable of crater resolves down to 600m.  500m might be possible under truly excellent seeing and when the Moon is particularly close to Earth.  There has been some discussion on what constitutes a fully resolved crater, but this would be my personal opinion.
