A few Moons and a different telescope

First MosaicFourth MosaicTerminatorThird MosaicThese are all mosaics of the Moon taken last night with a webcam and my 7” Maksutov-Cassagrain telescope.  This is a specialist scope designed for Lunar and planetry imaging – it seems to work quite well!  The seeing (atmosphere) was not all that steady but by stacking roughly 900 frames for each part of the mosaic Bizibilder seems to have managed to get an image.  Each “piece” of the mosaic is much smaller than those from the telescope that he has been using recently!
