Observing Report 22nd May 2010 (More Moon bits)

Posted by @ 2:24 pm on Thursday 27th May, 2010.

The skies on Saturday evening were very clear but after the high temperatures of the day the seeing was only middling. I managed to get some dSLR pics of open cluster M29 and of globular cluster M56, these will need some careful processing for which I've yet to find the time. I did get plenty of good views and camera footage of some lunar features, and I've had time to do some preliminary processing of them, the resulting images are as follows (mouseover for the occasional annotated versions):

Gambart (15 miles dia.), the Fra Mauro Highlands and the Apollo 14 landing site

 Plato (61 miles dia.)

Reinhold (29 miles dia.)

Copernicus (56 miles dia.)

Clavius (136 miles dia.)

Tycho (52 miles dia.)

Bullialdus (37 miles dia.)

Anaxagoras (31 miles dia.)

Scoresby (34 miles dia.)

Just in case you don't know your way around up there, here's some help:
