Undergraduate Life: Observing the Moon

For my 18th birthday just under 4 years ago I was given a 6″ Celestron Newtonian Reflector telescope. Over the years I have had a few observing sessions and every so often when the sky is clear enough have attempted some astrophotography. Below are some of the photos I have taken of an observing session of the Moon, my aim will be to do more observing and photography soon:

With AstroSoc as well we always endeavor to do some observing after our meetings and below are some of the images taken by our members. Most of these were taken with the societies 10″ Newtonian Reflector;
