Colours on the Moon

Colours 2There was an excellent talk last night at the Wolverhampton Astronomical Society, on the colours of the Moon. I’d seen a blue hue The Sea of Tranquillity before, but only on my photographs, so tonight I went out and got a (rather nice) single exposure. I’ve bumped up the saturation, and I think it’s pretty clear on this shot I’ll print it out and take it to the next meeting.
I also took some movie of Jupiter, which I’m hoping to stack using Registrax, but after an hour of fiddling, I’m giving up for tonight
Still, very pleased with the Moon image. The Moon was very high … the last time I had chance to photograph this phase, (seven days old perhaps?), it was lower, and I didn’t get this clarity.
