Moon 27th March

There was thin cloud covering the Moon tonight, which resulted in a loss of contrast, but I still like this shot of the Southern Highlands. Again, this is through the little 4″. I might submit a ‘Lunar Photography Through a Small Telescope’ article for the society newsletter.
Again, this picture features Clavius, Tycho etc.

Shad1I’ve really been enjoying the Lunar and constellation photography, and I’m hoping to get some more decent shots of Jupiter over the summer. But to get some deep sky objects captured on film, I really need to invest in some form of tracking. I’ve been looking at the Skywatcher Star Adventurer. It seems easy enough to set up, with an app for finding Polaris. I think it could well be the next step.
