Here's a pic of the moon through my telescope the outer edges look blurred due to atmospheric turbulence.

Also the big crater at the centre bottom is "Theophilus" it also has a mountain (central peak) which is about 1,400m high (if I remember correctly).
Some of the craters in the photo are smaller than 11km such as the rosse crater.

The dark craters (mare) appear dark as when the asteroid hit them, it caused lava to flow in the crater, it has now frozen and appears dark!

um I don't see it? :thinking:

wow awesome magnification! I should get a telescope too :D:wave:
through the eyepiece the magnification is even higher, but magnification is the least important thing with a telescope what matters is glass quality, mount and aperture! :)


I also have some pics of Saturn, but their of poor quality, although they may be still on my camera.

Neat old vacuum tube oscilloscope (from the 1950s I think). $15 ebay find.
