The moon on the night of October 17, taken with a small refractor ed 80 mm and a monochrome camera with a green interference filter.
 The light reflected by our satellite will take approximately 1.34 seconds to arrive,
it will be seen at that moment at 401000 km, very close to the apogee (farthest point of its orbit).
 The photograph shows details of up to approximately 2.5 km, with a disk illuminated at 59% and an apparent magnitude of -12.
