Skywatcher ED80 refractor with 0.8x reducer, ZWOASI290MC colour camera and a Baader IR pass filter.

Now that Jupiter is lower in the sky I turned my colour camera onto the Moon using an IR pass filter as an experiment. The ‘widescreen’ nature of the chip allowed a nice horizontal presentation, perhaps a fantasy view as I approach in my landing craft?
