Lunar images – October 29, 2015
After the lunar occultation of Aldebaran, presented in the previous post, I’ve managed to capture in the same session a few lunar shots with the 14 inch Newtonian. The seeing was variable (5-7/10), but some fine views of the craters at the terminator compensated for that.
The images are stacks of 1200 frames out of 5000, with the 355mm F/5 Newtonian at F/20, and the ASI120MM-S camera coupled with a Red filter.
First, a widefield mosaic showing Langrenus, Vendelius and Petavius:
Crater Messier in not so good seeing conditions:
And crater Petavius in good conditions, offering a dramatic view on the terminator, with its wide rille and central mountain well visible:
