The Moon on 1/12/08

The Moon set before I could get my scope set up last night, so tonight’s the first chance I’ve had to image the Moon with my new telescope. It did not disappoint. Visually, the Moon was stunning and there was tremendous detail, particularly when I used the 7mm eyepiece. Unlike my previous scope, the Moon does not quite fit in the area that the camera captures, so I had to stitch two images together.
