    This is another shot from Wednesday night. I'm quite pleased with the detail on this one, taken my usual way, 8"dob, hyperion zoom & 2X barlow, Canon 550D movie.

    Thanks Pete,

    Yep you are quite right, I just love all things Lunar! It was old luna which got me hooked on astronomy, and more than a year down the line I still find her fascinating!
