Crescent Moon - 5th July

I've been missing the sun being at work, so on Tuesday evening I decided to have a look at the crescent moon in the western evening sky. Seeing was ropey compared to my mooning earlier in the year, but nice to get a shot. Taken with the APM 100/800 and ZWO183mm camera. https://live.staticflickr.com/...

Re: July 5 2021 Observations

Thanks for the report James! An hour well spent. I was looking at the crescent moon last night and the seeing was below what i've had with my mooning sessions earlier in the year.

It doesn't matter for an ERF, go with whatever balances best.
