At this phase the eleven and a half day old Moon shows many of the dark lunar seas (Maria) on its surface. There are also some very prominent craters on display with the large craters called Tycho, Copernicus and Plato in view.
(I’ve marked some of the more interesting places on the surface in the second image)
The next eleven-day-old Moon will be on the 7th March 2020, you may like to revisit the Moon again and look at some of these wonderful features on the lunar surface with your binoculars or telescope.
If you live in the Northern hemisphere you may have noticed something different about my image, Yes, it’s upside down… that’s the way we view the Moon here in the Southern hemisphere ‘In the land down under’ J
My images were taken with a Meade 10inch LX200 Schmidt-Cassergrain telescope with a 6.3 focal reducer attached to capture the full disc of the Moon. I used a Canon 700D DSLR camera to capture the images, exposure time was 1/200th second and ISO100. Twelve images were stacked in RegiStax6 and processed in PS CS4.
