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.

Crater Schickard 8/12/11

It was so clear and transparent last night, and the moon was higher in the sky, I was able to get some decent pictures of the waxing gibbous moon that I have never taken before, like this area:
The largge crater is Schickard, on the western limb.  These photos of 8/12 were all taken with the green filter and the 3X barlow.  Seeing was pretty good, and the transparency was excellent.  Schickard is a big crater, measuring 233 km in diameter.  The crater walls and the floor is riddled with smaller impacts.
