Moon Pictures 5th March 2012

Here are some pictures I took of the Moon on the evening of the 5th March 2012. The phase of the Moon is Waxing Gibbous 91% full.

They were all taken using a simple “point and click” digital camera directly though the eye piece of my Bresser Skylux NG 70-700 refractor. The eyepeice lens was 20mm.

The results are not great, but they give you some idea of what is possible using very modest equipment.
