Between dodging tornados and all the cloudy weather we have had
here in Oklahoma this is the first image I have had to post in over
four weeks .
I intended to image Jupiter but my capture program would not
recognize my camera and by the time I got that fixed Jupiter was
to low so I went for the Moon .

I'm sure this has been discussed before
but there is an interesting almost square formation
at the bottom edge of the image in the middle.

This is a stack of 26 images from 600 , Starmaster 14.5 F/4.3
working at F/17.2 with a Powermate 4x Barlow
Toucam Pro, 10FPS , stacked and processed in Registax .

Any questions or comments pro or con are welcome

Great Pic Wes!
I can clearly see what you describe as a square formation below the crater... amazing!
Lots of detail.... gotta love Zambuto's!!

Thanks for sharing!


Hopefully we'll get to enjoy a clear sky on this upcoming Lunar Eclipse!

Great image! What is that square formation? maybe someone will know. It feels like forever when the weather is not cooprative for so long, I hope it stays clear for you so you can get out and do some of your great work.
