Luna

The more time I spend observing the Moon, the more fascinated I become with lunar geology and surface features. For being a rather barren place it sure has a great deal to offer. Here's a recent series of afocal photos taken with a Canon 20D and powered by my venerable 10" dobsonian.

Langrenus, Vendelinus, Petavius & Fernerius on the limb.



Mmm. Maria.

Centered on Copernicus. At the far left, the Hortensius volcanic domes are visible.


Eratosthenes and the Montes Apenninus.

Copernicus, Eratosthenes & co.



Target: Clavius.



Get the spackle!



The ejecta from Tycho (out of the frame) prominently spans across the lunar surface.

If you have the time, equipment, and motivation, give the Lunar 100 a shot.
