Lunar craters – April 16, 2016

A short lunar imaging session, with some unexpected good seeing conditions; not perfect seeing, but definitely much better compared to what I’ve experienced in the last few months…

The equipment: 355mm F/5 Newtonian with 3x and 2x Barlow lenses (F/15 and F/30), and the ASI174MM camera with a green filter. Seeing 7/10.

First shot is a two panel mosaic depicting the South Pole area with Moretus and Clavius:

Next image shows Clavius at F/30:

And the last shot, for now, presenting Copernicus under low illumination:

A larger field of view with Copernicus and Stadius:

And Plato with a few craterlets on its floor:
