A closer shot of the moon


Lastly we had winds from the East in the Canary islands. The East winds bring dust from Sahara desert. This is named "Calima" is Spanish.

For some reasons (we do not know) the atmosphere is particularly quiet when loaded with Sahara dust. There are very few turbulences and we still have sharp images despite of magnifying 225 times.

One this picture, we used our handmade 16'' telescope (1.80m focal length) along with Ethos 8 mm X 100º eyepiece and a decent mobile phone.

Enjoy and share with no fear.
