Aldebaran, Hyades & Moon

Post by mike a feist »

Sunday 28/07/19, 0400 BST. Clear sky. Crescent Moon with Earthshine finally cleared a nearby tree enabling a good view in 8x36 Nikon binocular of the Moon + Aldebaran + all the main stars of the of the Hyades...all fitting a single fov. (FOV given as 7 degrees). Even managed to photograph all these objects in the camera just rested on the top of the spotting scope, although, of course, the bright crescent was much over exposed. A lovely sight. Regards maf.
