Lunar Observing Challenge was created by SometimesKen
Hey Fellas,
I have my own observing challenge going on .... I'm trying to image the Lunar Top 100 Objects. Here's a few I captured earlier this week. All images were taken with a Orion Atlas EQ 8 newtonian and a ToUcam Pro.
Hope you like them ....
Vallis Schoter


Schiller


and Kepler


3 down 97 to go !!!

Later Sports,

Very nice pics!
The first 2 almost look 3-dimensional.

Great idea for a astro-pic challenge and a nice start.

Hey Guys,
Thanks for your words of encouragement! :)

The particular night I took the avi's wasn't a good night for viewing, high clouds were passing thru and within a few hours everything dewed up and ended the session early. But even a less than optimal night for viewing is better than no viewing at all! Ya think?
Here's another with objects I was able to identify! My current method of processing the avi's, then using the Virtual Moon Atlas to ID the objects has room for improvement.
Klaproth & Casatus


Here are a few that I have yet to ID. I was playing around with imaging the same object at different magnifications.




Hummm ... don't know why Klaproth & Casatus ain't coming out?
4 down - 96 to go !!!

Happy Easter !
C-ya Fellas,
