Lunar Imaging

Imaging our moon is a much easier activity and best done during the first and last quarters when better detail in texture is possible. Almost any telescope, refractor or reflector, can be used with a good DSLR or more specialize astronomical digital imaging device. The following lunar images were captured with either the Observatory’s 12.5” Newtonian or my Meade 8” LS-8 ACF. As with solar imaging, captures were 300 frame AVI sequences post-processed Registax 6. Though an interesting imaging target, the moon is less dynamic than our sun.
