Moon & Jupiter Feb 14 2013


An unexpected clear evening with a nice crescent moon flower in the West, and Jupiter high overhead at about 7:00 this evening.  Imaged with a DMK mono camera with an Astronomic IR Pro 807 nm filter as there was a lot of atmospheric turbulence.  Anyway, imaged through a 12″ LX200R at native f10.

First image is of Langrenus Crater

The third image was a bonus, Jupiter through the same IR pass filter
