Thanks, these are awesome, I'm unable align the stars in M42 to get a sensible verification of your latitude probably cause your using a 150(skywatcher?) and I'm using a 200 and I can't really use the moon without a date/time/direction since its on a 5 degree tilt.

A photo of a half moon just before moon set would be perfect then I can measure the angle of the terminator to the horizon.
Your moonset angle should be at least 13 degrees different from mine for a globe & I can't think of an FE theory that would explain that.

I'll also take sunspots on a setting sun provided I can get the sun where I live- weather is a challenge.

Here is mine taken at latitude 55.86N using a 200mm newtonian on clock driven equatorial mount.
The frame was aligned orthogonally to the horizon & the camera was a Canon 1200d set for 2 minute exposure on a clear night with the target due south.

If I can get one photo of any astronomical body(showing some features like moon craters, star clusters, sun spots, rings of saturn) from anyone in a different latitude that would be awesome. I need to know what latitude it was taken at and approx direction in the sky(north,south,east,west)
