Young crescent of 8. Oktober 2010

Version 11. Oktober 2010, Martin Elsaesser

On the day after conjunction, the autumn fog only dissolved after noon with lots of cirrus remaining. I tested a simplified baffle scheme which worked well enough. The hazy sky prevented more detailed images.

Haze and cirrus clouds
Unfavorable weather in the afternoon, which made observation difficult. Even sundogs were visible for some time.

Lunar crescent in daytime
Image of the lunar crescent around 17:45 local time at 13 elongation, through haze and cirrus.
