John Kirchhoff is an amateur astronomer, who is based in Hudson, MI, USA. At the beginning of the week, he submitted a couple of Lunar images, which he captured with his FireWire astronomy camera DMK 41AF02.AS, manufactured by The Imaging Source.
The first image is of Vallis Alpes and the second a wide field shot, which he captured on June 25, 2008 and June 28, 2008 (click on the images to see the original version):
In addition to the images, John wrote:
Attached images were taken with the DMK [astronomy] camera. The seeing conditions were very average at best and I continue to be amazed at how well the DMK's can "beat" the seeing! The widefield shot is at f/10, the Vallis Alpes image closeup at f/25 using a Celestron 235mm SCT.
We send out a great thanks to John for his high resolution images and for his enthusiasm with The Imaging Source astronomy cameras.
