We're getting there now....

Spurred on by our foray to the Sheffield Astro Society's dark sky meeting I have just come in from taking some shots of the moon. I just had to get these on the blog ASAP. Both are taken at prime focus with a 2x SkyWatcher barlow.
The top image shows crater Clavius (large crater at bottom) with craters Rutherfurd (bottom) and Porter (top) sitting on it's rim.
The lower image shows Mare Imbrium with crater Plato clearly seen (top). Montes Alples (to Plato's top right) and the Vallis Alpes (to Plato's bottom right) are clearly seen.




Canon EOS M ISO100 1/15sec manual focus. Cropped and processed.
