Copernicus shot with ASI224 MC and Filter Zwo Ir Cut

180

This time i tried to shoot a beautiful crater in the Moon without the using of the IR Pass filter. I used instead a Zwo Ir Cut Filter.

The crater i chose is Copernicus (Copernic). It’s a young and isolated formation with hexagonal form, bight rays all around. Very steep slopes dominant Mare Insularum of 900 m tormented and supporting Fauth to the South and
Gay-Lussac to the North.
