Montes Apenninus mountain range

on Tuesday, June 06, 2017

Easily visible with binoculars, this lunar mountain range is home to many mountain peaks including Mons Huygens, the tallest mountain on the moon. I find the best time to view this area is right after the first quarter when the shadows really highlight this mountain range.
Tech Specs: Canon 6D, Meade 12” LX90 telescope, best 1250 frames out of 5,000 frames captured. Software included AutoStakkert! V3.0.14 (x64), Backyard EOS v3 and Registax v6. Location: Weatherly, PA. Date: June 2, 2017.
