Professor Dr. Michael Schuster took these extraordinary Moon images in Munich this August. He has not sent us many pictures but most of his works are masterpieces like the ones below.

Momentarily it is silly time for amateur astronomers in middle Europe and other parts of the world, so I decided to post some more pictures of my lunar series recorded with my DMK 41AU02.AS in August this year. On August 1st seeing conditions around Munich were very good and I was able to push the optics of my Celestron C 9.25 telescope to its limits. Unfortunately such good seeing conditions are very rare here, especially in NovemberÂ….

Thank you Dr. Schuster! Truly remarkable. Clear skies!
