Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Moon 7/6/11

I went out it was clear, but just as I got the scope focused up, the moon just disappeared.  Wouldnt ya know, the clouds started rolling in.  This ruined my chances of doing a mosaic.  I was gonna spend some serious telescope time making certain I got the entire moon, but the clouds ruined that.  I was able to take some short avi's of a selected region, so without thinking, I located Mare Nectarus and shot 2 AVI's one of Theophilus, Crillus and Catherina and one of Rupes Altai, 2 areas of the moon I have photographed a number of times in the past.  In my opinion, they came out real nice with good resolution and detail.  This is what I wanted to test all along, so what better area to compare than one which I have photographed before.

Here they are:

                                                                             Mare Nectarus

                                                                                                              Rupes Altai
