A few lunar shots in daylight – August 26, 2016

The following lunar images were acquired, as the title suggests, during morning sunlight, with the Sun almost 10 degrees up at the end of the imaging session.

The seeing was poor to good (3-6/10), and some small details are visible, but the noise level made processing these images quite hard. This is why these shots are of rather poor quality…

Still, since they are my first lunar shots acquired with the “Mobile One” setup in quite a while, I’ll post them here.

First, a few shots (phone-shots) with Mobile One:

  1. So, Mobile One was ”mobile none” for a while. Anyway, good shots, for day time.

    • Yep, I did not use the “big one” for some time. Hope to eventually get some clear skies and excellent seeing and of course some time for good lunar images. Thank you!

  2. Nice shots! I especially like those of Copernicus and Eratosthenes, they’re hard to catch in such detail.
