About this image

Waning Moon on Saturday 7th November 2020 at 1:30am.

I’ve got to be honest and say that I think these are my best ever Moon photographs.

I’ve even managed to capture the colours of the different rock/mineral areas.

Early this morning the Moon was 20.7 days old, 65.2% illuminated, and a magnitude of -11.5.  The sky was slightly hazy but, most importantly, it was stable.

Usual telescope and camera setup – Celestron 11” SCT with f/6.3 focal reducer and ZWO ASI071MC Pro astro-camera.
