Lunar Imaging Session - December 30, 2017

The sky was clear so KC and I went up the roof deck to observe the Waxing Gibbous Moon. Seeing condition is fair. I use my ZWO ASI120MM webcam on Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens with 2x barlow lens and mounted on Celestron Nexstar mount to image the full disk as well as closeups of Tycho Crater and Mare Serenitatis Regions.

Super Full Moon (Perigee Full Moon) - December 3, 2017

The last Super Full Moon or Perigee Full Moon for 2017 brings up some hype again but for me, this is just a normal lunar imaging session for me to capture it using Canon EOS 500D DSLR with Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/11 on sturdy tripod. Exposure of 1/500 sec exposure at ISO 200. Both me and my son had some bonding moment to image the Moon together at our condo's roof deck.
