Sea of Serenity
I captured this image on my first night of imaging. One thing that appeals to me is the faint chromatic aberration that is washed over the image.I feel it adds depth as well as showing how well an inexpensive scope can perform coupled with this camera. I'm new to imaging, but have been a visual astronomer for nearly 40 years.
