Default ASTRO : Eratosthenes; labeled - Moon

Hi - one image from last night's session of a nice lunar crater near the
terminator; 60 km wide. Great evening till the heavy dew set in (fog to
my north).

Key Colony Beach 24.7210N 81.0190W
LX200 12"; Titan
NexImage
~800 images with Registax 4
- take care - Rod

No wonder the moon was so bright last night. Guess I should try moon
shots as with the snow any moon kills me for deep sky.

Like the secondary craters from Copernicus as well.

Hi - thanks Rick, my parents just left last week and had to wait a day
to get home due to the closure of I-75 into Ohio. - it is really odd
about the weather and thanks for looking - Rod

Great image Rod!

After reading a recent post by Roland Christen (owner of Astro Physics)
about using his personal 10-inch Mak at 600+ power at the Winter Star Party
to see *detail* on the moons of Jupiter, I'm even more convinced that I have
to get down to Florida for some high-rez imaging.

I had hoped to do some lunar observing/imaging last night, but, alas, just a
dark high cloud moved in.

Something about this picture makes me think that it was *not* taken at Key
Colony Beach.
