Archimedes via ToUCam Pro 840k avi file, processed with Registax 3, about 400 frames. Scope was Stellarvue 152mm apo. Used 4X Televue Powermate. Image is inverted. Strong sunset shadowing from crater rim resembles a Beatle haircut. Mountains left of center are The Spitzbergens.

Scope and mount supplied by 3RF Sciences (on the Web at 3RF dot org).

Photo made on or about Oct. 17, 2005.
