2021-06-21 04:45UT Back home from the balcony a collection of craters along the terminator with the 160mm refractor and ASI 174MM camera.

2021-06-13. Another nice visit to the dark sky observing site of the Trivally Stargazers. In the evening sky there was a nice crescent Moon in a constellation with Venus, Mars and the stars Castor and Pollux of Gemini the twins.

2021-03-27. We are opening the 2021 campaign at a date close to the full Moon with libration tilting crates from the lunar south (like Bailly) towards us. The seeing was relatively good and allowed the use of the 5x Barlow/telecentric with the 130mm refractor. Progressing from North to South.
