    Default Airy Swirl



    If you have read previous attempts, you know that I am a little fascinated by these lunar swirls. With the new XT12 and some good evening skies, I thought I would try picking out the Airy swirl with the bigger scope. I don't think the picture does it justice, but I think these features are easier to pick out in the bigger scope.

    pictures are almost always taken afocally using my XT6 with a 25 mm eyepiece, 0.5x focal reducer, and a Fuji point and shoot camera.

    Well, that's pretty darn neat. I'll need to start keeping an eye out for these features.
