The Moon

  The sky above Boulder finally cleared and I was able to test some equipment out that I've been dying to get going.  I didn't stay out long considering it was only 4 degrees outside, but I set up my new battery and inverter running the tracking mount for the first time.  I pointed the scopes at the moon for the first time in a couple of months and started recording a movie.  After a couple hours of compressing the video frames in to a single image, this is what popped out the other end!  Still seems a tad over-sharpened, but it's amazing what kind of detail can be teased out of 2,000 images...
