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.



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