|Tonight is a bit different for me. Inspired by one of the new members of My Online Astronomy Journal DanLuna, I decided to not be frusterated when the moon is out, but instead to simply look at it.
In the spirit of learning the Lunar terrain, I took a photo from last month that I shot with my digital camera by sticking it in front of the eyepiece and marked the craters and "seas" that I could see. I didn't mark all of the mountain ranges and seas because I don't understand their boundaries yet.
Here is the shot: Moon-Northwest_Quarter.jpg
I brought the brightness and contrast down in Photoshop so I could see the white letters. I'll need to figure out a better way because in doing that I ended up losing detail. I'll try taking more pictures of the moon and continue to label the images as I learn the Lunar surface.
