The Moon – October 13, 2016
I’ve started processing some of the October 13 lunar images. Mostly poor seeing, but the goal of the night was to test some modifications to the 200m F/5 homemade Newtonian. The modifications were OK, but the lunar images were of poor quality and so I will present the shots more like lunar formations identification charts.
The equipment: 200mm F/5 Newtonian, 3x Barlow lens, ASI 174MM camera with Red filter. Seeing 4/10.
Mare Crisium, Proclus, Messier and Langrenus:
And the identification of some of the larger craters:
Crater Wargentin, the well-known lava-filled crater:
Mare Humorum with Gassendi:
And an inverted view of the above, also perspective-corrected to show the true shape of the Humorum impact (note the ridges around the basin):
