Some lunar shots – October 20, 2016

A lunar imaging session under strange conditions: good seeing but a lot of high altitude cirrus clouds, with almost no stars visible with the naked eye. Still, some shots were possible, but with very high gain settings which added a lot of noise.

Equipment: 355mm homemade Newton, Baader 2.25x Barlow, ASI 120MM-S with Red filter. Seeing 6-7/10.

There were some very nice lunar formations to be captured under good illumination.
