The surface of the moon – as photographed today in the afternoon with a new lens which I recently bought on ebay and just received two days ago: an MTO-11CA  from the russian manufacturer LZOS (built somewhen around 1992).

I planned to watch this year’s Perseid meteor shower at a mountain cabin (‘Mödlingerhütte’), at an altitude of 1523m.
