In this blog I document interesting events around my astro activities. My videos can also be viewed on my pixlimit youtube channel.

Moonwalk along the terminator with my Skywatcher Heritage 150p telescope using SharpCap, February 02, 2021
. If you look closely, you can see seeing-effects (air turbulences). The Moon terminator is the division between the illuminated and dark hemispheres of the Moon.
