Hi all,

Thought I would share these two pic's with you taken with my Meade LX90GPS 8in & Meade DSI1 in mono.
The unusual thing with these shot's is they were taken before the sun had set and the sky was still blue, not tried this before.

Not sure were the first one is,cant seem to find it on my moon atlas,perhaps someone can help out here?

The second one is i'm sure the Mons Bradley Mountain Range.

Cheers Dave.

I've done a few. Although I find that visual observations of the Moon are almost as good as night ones, my photos aren't as good. Usually anything away from the terminator and limb gets overexposed. Now I was going to try "blue frame subtraction" until my back went. Perhaps I can try again in the autumn.

The photos are in my lunar gallery but I haven't separated them from the night and twilight shots. Thye're all in date order.
