It has been some time that a moon picture was chosen as “Picture of the week”.  On 2014 November 13th Leo took a number of high resolution images of the moon, and this is one example.  Imaging close to the moon limb gives that extra dimension which gives an impression of 3D.

Imaging was achieved using Leo's 14 inch Celestron SCT, a red filter and webcam DMK31AU03.
