4th of June: Moon

Just back and saw the bright moon outside, setup my Orion 100ED f/9. Originally, I wanted to use my Tele Vue 3x but I ended up with a 5x since 3x requires too much outward travel which is hard to go in an indoor setting. Low frequency seeing at around 3/10, transparency 3/10 when I took most of the shots. All shots tracked by my Meade LXD55, and taken with my DMK 31AF03.

2251 (GMT+8), the only 2x shot (i.e. 1800mm focal length):-

2255 (GMT+8) at 4500mm:-

2257 (GMT+8) at 4500mm:-

2259 (GMT+8) at 4500mm:-

2302 (GMT+8) at 4500mm:-

I also have a look with my 7mm ortho, very sharp and nice. I turned off the motor to drift across the field of view, that feels like flying inside a spaceship and looking out from the window. :-)
