Description

On special astronomically strict order by Admiral Rudolf Riedl, Captain Henning Schmidt and Chief Engineer Axel Kutter, here is the February 2021 edition of Lunar Impressions after upgrading from 6 to 8 inches (my workhorse telescope).

Since I had four days with only few clouds, though with turbulent air an incredible piece of luck, I picked many images taken with my new C8 and hope it does not look jam-packed.

This is most probably my last telescope purchase, any larger one would require a new mount. I didn't tell my dealer in order not to loose my status as valued customer and discounts for future (very) small gear.
