Date Time: December 13, 2016 @ 1900-2000 hrs
Weather: Increasing clouds, slight breeze, -9 C with windchill of -16 C.
Equipment: Canon Rebel Xsi and Nexus 4 cellphone camera attached to a Canadian Telescopes 80ED/APO f/6.25 with 12 mm eyepiece.
Objective: To view and image the Full Cold Moon which was suppose to rise on this evening.
- Shortly after dark a thin layer of clouds covered the sky, but were see-through as far as the very bright full Moon went. Cloud cover increased as evening went on.
- Used a moon filter when visually observing. Helped a great deal in cutting down glare which was relief to the eyeball.
- Many bright, small impact zones were visible across the face of the Moon.
- No shooting stars or satellites were seen.
