This evening the sky is foggy, the moon is bright and the CCD is on the telescope: what can I do?

The moon is far too bright for imaging with a normal CCD, OR NOT?

Well, the narroband filters are narrow enough to dim the moon brightness and allow to catch some shots.

Here an SII, OIII, HBeta composition of the Moon: quite weird don't you?

10x0,2 seconds of exposure with each filter.
