Back in the Observatory Again!

It finally cleared up enough on March 12, 2014 to shoot the Moon for a few minutes.  This shot, though incomplete,  is actually a composite of 12 shots into one. Using eyepiece projection (25mm eyepiece onto the Canon T2i body CCD directly) and in the 1920×1200 movie mode, I eliminated all but the best shots, then used a panorama program to stitch the individual shots together. Add some post processing contrast and sharpening and the results you see. I'd better pay more attention next time to capturing ALL the parts of the Moon next time!
Also included here is Tycho and Copernicus craters from the same shoot.
