Posted: 2 September 2014
Opened: Monday, 1 September 2014, 1815 MST
1826 MST: viewed the nearly First Quarter Moon, 83X. The overlapping craters of Pallas and Murchison were an interesting sight. At 222X, the crater Albategnius central peak showed a nice shadow on the crater floor. 1848 MST: sunset. Began setting up for iPhone 5s afocal imaging on the 8" LX200-ACF using the modified MX-1 Afocal Adapter and the Earbuds/Mic volume control as a remote shutter release.
1854 MST: 77X
