3 Different Moons (Plus 1 more!) :)

CCD vs Film? Lots of time vs no patience? Alright, this is your place to discuss all the astrophotography what's and what's not. You can discuss about techniques, accessories, cameras, whatever....just make sure you also post some nice photos here too!

3 Different Moons (Plus 1 more!) :)

Post by loneoceans »

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd like to share my shots of our lovely moon! I don't have much equipment, but here are the photos I've taken of the moon in recent months. In order of date taken (big photo link below each thumbnail):

Taken using my handphone camera (k750i)

Not perfect yet but I'm working on improving myself and my equipment! Comments and suggestions most welcomed! :)

I forgot to mention that these photos were taken by carefully placing my camera (both phone and digital) to the eyepiece of my cheap telescope. Of course I don't have a mount (planning to make one myself), so it requires very careful focusing, exposure, positioning and stillness. :) Going to collimate my reflector again! More details soon!
