Hi I have some moon pictures last night in between the clouds and also I got a fast moving object in the northwest of the sky which not sure if it is a comet as it was quite bright with my mono cam. :D
Hope you enjoy.

Not a comet, I'm sorry to say. It was bright though, probably a satellite. I notice some possible ghost images on the lens.

Some nice features on the moon's terminator, which just goes to show that it is possible to do some useful observation of the moon, even when it is nearly full. The craters Aristoteles and Eudoxus look good, illuminated from the 'other side'. The Appenine mountains look 3 dimensional. The photos are well exposed, but would look a little better if the dark areas were lightened a little bit. The crater Posidonius on the bottom of your shot would look better, and there is a nice ridge in the Mare Serenitatis which you've captured, but is lost in the darkness. I've taken the liberty of doing a bit of processing of your photo. (I've flipped and rotated it too)

I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

Hi Aratus I have put my scope up in the loft and was just trying out the scope with the camera for the first time as I did not now how it would react to the heat turbulence in the room.I always manage to catch a satellite and I managed to get it in focus on another image,it showed a coma around when I zoomed in on the object quickly.Thanks once again for modifying my image,it gives me something to compare.
