Day 5 of my “High Resolution Moon Week” Image #5
“The Imbrium Triangle”
Are you ready for some sharp jaw dropping close-ups of the Moon? Please put them up full screen and Enjoy!
I will be posting a new Lunar close-up every day this week. Also Please comment if you like them….
These Images are all taken with my “COLO” Setup!
COLO = Chumack Observatory Lunar Orbiter aka my backyard Observatory
(old orange tube C8 SCT scope, F6.3 & QHY5IIIL290M Camera), these are so close-up and detailed,
I may as well have been in orbit above the Moon.
All images processed in Autostakkert3, Registax6, PS CC 2020,
FireCapture Ser video files, 600 to 1200 sharpest frames Stacked.
“The Imbrium Triangle” Over past few days I posted 3 close-up shots of well known impact Craters and Lunar Features,
this Particular image shows them all in a wider angle view, creating a triangle between the 3 major features the Imbrium Triangle as it covers Copernicus Crater(left edge), Sinus Iridum- Bay of Rainbows (upper right), and Plato Crater(Lower right). All three of these craters straddle Mare Imbrium – “The Sea of Rains”.
If you were able to drive the distance from Copernicus crater(left) to Plato crater (lower right), it would be like driving from Indianapolis to New York City.
The drive would be 700+ miles.
