Lunar Imaging Session - October 29, 2013 (ASI1200MM First Light!)

I overslept again this morning and almost missed imaging the Moon! I quickly setup my TV-101 refractor and tested the ZWO ASI1200MM webcam on its first light replacing my trusted ATIK 1HS II webcam which was my primary solar and lunar imaging camera. Seeing condition is not that good. Initial conclusion is this camera is awesome! I need to use a 3" extension tube for me to reach focus. Using the 2" diagonal can't reach focus though. I was planning to image at high resolution but roof obstruction prevented me from doing it :( Anyway, I will try to do another session tomorrow morning at an earlier time :)
