Many thanks Pedro for your presentation and the excellent Lunar images too.

in fact last-night/18th, before it got too dark, I also was looking at the Moon with the first-light of my new SkyWatcher ESPRIT 80ED Triplet and trying-out many differing EP's and qualities, whilst mounted on my Vixen GP-DX Mount and using the ubiquitous SkySensor 2000PC HBX.

With only a rough horizontal and northerly-setting-up, I was quite surprised that slewing to the Moon occurred almost exactly on centre, as I hadn't used this for around two-years, when I last changed the internal Li-On backup battery. So it held the time and location data very well.

I will be posting some images shortly of the newbie..

Best Wishes
Terry

Beautiful!! superb lunar imaging :bow :hamster:

Also great to see the views of how your garden has changed. I'm glad you put a new seat and pergola in for a bit of shade. Are you going to grow a plant up it? I've just realised that is the roll off roof :lol: I guess you won't then :lol: but the seat definitely needed the shade :)

Thanks Terry and Alexandra

It is very dry now and the grass will grown when it starts to rain (in a couple of months).

The lunar images are great Pedro, just too bad the contrast is reduced as we get so close to full.

The video clip is also very good!!!
