 Copernicus

Copernicus

The Crater Copernicus (diam. 93km) is the center of one of the most visible systems of bright radiating rays. The depth of the crater is about 3800m, the central mountains rise about 1200 above the lava-filled Crater floor. On high resolution images chains of craterlets are visible in the vicinity of Copernicus.

single Video frameThis image was done under mediocre seeing conditions (to say the least) For this image I used 252 single frames from a video-tape shot with our Hi8 Camcorder through my 5.1" Newton telescope. I used Astrostack to align and register the images. The image at right shows the quality of a single frame used for result above.
