Some Moonage 130619

Seeing was average for imaging Jupiter, so turned the 12 inch Dob onto the moon. I forget how interesting the moon is through a telescope.

Great photos Richard!

What is sitting inside the crater on your second image?

What type of camera did you use on your dob to capture these?

Im only new to astronomy and love looking at the moon through my 10 inch dob.

Hi James,

From Wikipedia about Crater Copernicus

“Most likely due to its recent formation, the crater floor has not been flooded by lava. The terrain along the bottom is hilly in the southern half while the north is relatively smooth. The central peaks consist of three isolated mountainous rises climbing as high as 1.2 km above the floor. These peaks are separated from each other by valleys, and they form a rough line along an east-west axis. Infrared observations of these peaks during the 1980s determined that they were primarily composed of the mafic form of olivine.”

The central mountainous structures are lit up by sunlight.

The camera is a ZWO ASI 120 MC. It is a great colour camera for moon and planets.

Richard.
