Mark Loves The Moon

There... I've said it.

After many years of confirmed, nearly exclusive focus on deep sky, I've fallen.  Its the images of our own local Jim Ferreira, along with a Texan named Robert Reeves, that got me looking.  Now I can't wait to get out and observe even in my bright Los Gatos skies.  Here's a photo of Reeves as an example of some of the detail I'd like to try picking up - although this shot with Reeve's new a 20"....  just to think of it... buying a 20" scope to shoot the moon!

Anyone else here spend their time looking at what my buds and I used to call "The Great Obliterator" and the "Plaster Ball"?  Think its a superb target for sketching!

I've got a 2" moon filter on order to go with my 18mm 82* wide ... does that answer your question?  :-p
