    Default Went look at the moon tonight



    Been awhile since I've panned around the moon with my telescope so tonight I thought I'd take a look at it since it is up in the western sky at dusk. Stayed out till the misquitos ran me in. Here is as couple pics I took

    Hi Jazzin. A beautiful quintet of lunar images from you here. Very nice contrast, and nice surface details along the terminator. Thanks for braving the mosquitos and sharing these nice captures with us, and keep up the great work.

    Very nice!

    Regards the Skeeters, consider building a Bat-House. Bats will be quite helpful. They eat their own weight in mosquitoes daily!

    Better the Bats than me,

    Was hoping for a less blurry image. Forgot to set the shutter release time on my camera.

    I'm always so rushed to get everything setup, I'm always forgetting to do something. lol
