Moon (target 1), Mare Nectaris, Theophilus, Cyrillus, Catharina (target 8)

The darker sea in the centre of this image is the Mare Nectaris. I like this area of the moon, There's a nice set of lava flooded craters to the west in Theophilus, Cyrillis and Catherina. - target 8 of the Lunar 100.

 

Target 1 is the moon itself. This seems like a reasonable image for the easiest of the targets.

 

Shot through a Skywatcher 130M 900m newtonian.

Imaging via a 640x480 Asda webcam.

Webcam cost about £6 and was dismantled to remove the lens and expose the CMOS chip.
