Walking the Moon with my own Photos - After Half Moon

Introduction | Photos | References

On these pages I do "moon walks" on the basis of my own photos. In other words, I try to name the objects on my lunar photos to get to know the moon better. Maybe these pages will help others to get to know the moon better as well...

On this page, the moon can be seen from shortly before Half Moon until shortly after Half Moon.

Back to the overview of my "moon walks".

 

Introduction

The following photos show the moon after Half Moon. The photos are rotated by 180 degrees or mirrored so that they correspond to the normal visual impression.

 

Photos

Set 1

This newer photo of the moon was taken on February 24, 2018 - one day after Half Moon (Half Moon was on February 23, 2018, shortly after 9 a.m.). The photo was taken with the Sky-Watcher Skymax-102 OTA and again with the camera held to the eyepiece.

Bancroft (13 km diameter), Feuillee (10 km diameter), and Beer (10 km diameter) serve as examples of small craters that can be recognized.

Set 2

Now a photo of the moon, which was taken with the Sky-Watcher Explorer 150PDS and the camera held to the eyepiece (May 5, 2017; two days afters Half Moon, which was on May 3, 2017 at about 7:40 p.m.).

Bancroft (13 km diameter), Feuillee (10 km diameter), and Beer (10 km diameter) serve as examples of small craters that can be recognized.

Two more photos taken with the 5" Sky-Watcher Heritage P130 telescope and the camera held to the eyepiece (April 23, 2010; Half Moon was on April 21, 2010 at about 7:20 p.m.).

Bullialdus A (26 km diameter) and B (21 km diameter) serve as examples of small craters that can be recognized. They are probably not representative for the original photo, which was downsampled considerably for this purpose.
