Italian SEEING!

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Gianluca,

looks familiar, the only difference is that the thunderstorms over here happen during daytime so that the lightnings aren't nice photo subjects 8O

Best wishes & clear skies!
Oliver

P.S.: The east edge of the sund shows a nice new active region - according to www.solarmonitor.org of course, it's raining outside...

Hi Richard,

a great rendering of the rays, the different lavas and the secondary craters. A good example that it doesn't require a low angle of sunlight for great lunar images smile

Best wishes & clear skies,
