January Moon #2

Similarly poor observing contitions tonight to the last, unfortunately. The only difference this evening was a relative lack of wind.

Below are a pair of additional images taken under less-than-desirable circumstances. Just for experimentation's sake, tonight (using the same equipment as in the last lunar entry) I shot with the 50mm prime wide open at f/1.4. Not a tremendous difference considering the overall system focal length & f-ratio. To truly accomplish the caliber of images I'm after, I'll have to buckle down at some point and add an apochromatic refractor to the stable of gear.


1/50"


1/25"

Anyone unfamiliar with lunar surface features might enjoy a visit to the Lunar Republic Society's Full Moon Atlas. Fun, interactive resource.
