Hello,

2 pictures of the Moon, using a SCT 9.25" and the ASI178MC.

First, the near full Moon :

And now, the colours of the Moon soils (due to metallic oxides) :

Clear skies.

Some more work with my SCT 9.25" and the ASI178MC.

Here are some examples of very enhanced colours Moon, which show differences in soils composition. Just remember, blue means titanium oxides and orange/red means iron oxides.

First, Nectaris and Fecunditatis seas region :

Second, Tranquillitatis and Serenitatis seas region :

For me, 2 majors things about those pictures :

- it's quite rare to have good close up with sharp details with that kind of pictures

- the colours are really good for a colour sensor. I thought only mono sensor with very selective RGB filters could give such colours but i was a bit wrong.

I hope i will have more colourful pictures when i will have an ASI178 mono camera with RGB filters.

Clear sky

The colours are really good. Soils are well detailed.

Wow, Alan

absolutely breathtaking pictures - I never saw them before...
I also have a ASI178MC and now, I can not wait trying to take photos like your ones - but a precondition is, to have a perfect location and also a perfect night...
