From January 19th to 23rd, longitudinal and latitudinal libration extremes join forces for one of the best views of Mare Orientale this year. Within that interval the peak nights are January 20th and 21st, when the Moon will be in waning gibbous phase and well placed for viewing - Excerpt from Sky & Telescope article "Set your sights on this Lunar Bull's-Eye" Mare Orientale, one of the most spectacular lunar seas most people have never seen! Shot from Delhi's miserable Skies, just couldn't miss this one as next few days rains are predicted! Do try and catch this! Captured using Sharpcap Capture Area=3096x2080 Colour Space=RGB24 Gain=196 Exposure=0.015421 Stacked 75% of 3000 frames in ASi3, sharpened in Registax 6 and Photoshop. Clear Skies!
