International Observe the Moon Night was on Saturday October 16. The early cloud cleared up in time to see the ISS zoom between Venus, Jupiter and Saturn and the Moon. Despite a lot of atmospheric turbulence I got some decent shots of the Moon (had to discard lots of frames). Didn’t bother with Jupiter or Saturn due to the atmospheric shenanigans. 

Web cam shots of Sinus Irium are neat and all, but misses out on a lot of interesting surrounding territory.  The problem with higher magnification is it also magnifies the atmospheric turbulence, so even stacking with wavelets doesn’t help as much as I would like.
