Moon Heraclitus

Bob Pilz, a long time customer (November 2005) of The Imaging Source has sent me a nice lunar image taken with his DMK 21BF04. He purchased this triggered camera from the machine vision side of the house, before the astronomy cameras division was established and long before I came on the scene!

In an e-mail to The Imaging Source, Bob writes:

[...] here is an image of Heraclitus taken with my DMK 21BF04 camera. It is shown 1.25x to make it easier to see the many small craters resolved in this image. This camera continues to amaze me with its sensitivity and low noise.
