First moon shot


Recommended Posts

It's always a good feeling producing your first Astro picture.

The moon might seem to be an easy subject, but it is difficult to capture well. Not only focus is very critical, but exposure time, framing, and ISO setting all play a big part. Shutter operation need to be remotely operated to avoid unnecessary vibration which can adversly affect the result.

You've made a good start, but I think the slight blurring?, is due to vibration, so a remote control is a priority for you.

You will improve, no doubt about it.;)

That's really very good! Well done.

As Ron says, a tiny bit blurry, but nothing that can't be sorted very easily. You've got the basics sussed - it's not easy with a digital camera, hence I do mine with a webcam.
