Lunar Pictures from January 2020

A few pictures of the moon that I took with my Meade 14 ACF SCT scope with a ASI 174MM camera in January 2020.  The pictures utilised no filters at all.

The Meade 14″ is an astounding scope that I liked very much.  However, with a heavy heart I subsequently went on to sell this telescope since I felt that in my Bortle 5skies it doesn’t offer any significant advantage over and above the Celestron C925;  the latter scope being very much more manageable that the huge (and very heavy) 14″ Meade.   At some point in the future I may regret this decision since the scope  excelled on the few occasions I took it to truly dark skies. However, I could not let my heart rule my head and I decided to sell it.
