I took this early Saturday morning. Seeing was great for f/10, but borderline for f/20. This picture is at f/10. I also took some pictures of this crater at f/20 and I hope to process them in a few days.

Meade 12 inch SCT, no diagonal, DMK 21F04 CCD camera. I used Registax3 to stack the best 1,000 out of 2,800 frames. An Optec-S TCF was used for precise focusing.

Hi Kirk,

Outstanding! image, the focus looks perfect, what steps do you go through to focus with the Optec-S TCF.
