All the images were taken by Mike Southby using a Meade ETX 125 telescope (borrowed from Kevin Miller) with a 26mm SP Eyepiece.

The top image was taken using the Meade LPI (Lunar Planetary Imager) in conjunction with the Autostar suite of software run on a lap top computer.

The rest of the images were taken with a Canon S40 digital camera using the afocal method. Note that all images are inverted as they are through a telescope.
