First Moon Pic

Recommended Posts

My first shot of the moon so be gentle!

I used my Astromaster 130 and Philips webcam with Sharpcap and Registax.

This is all I could get on the screen, so I presume I will have to do a mosaic to get the full monty?

I'm just chuffed that at long last I managed to get a hole in the clouds for a couple of hours!!

That's a great start - very well done.

You're dead right - a mosaic beckons if you want the whole moon - or concentrate on single shots along the terminator (the line between sun and shadow) - that's where you'll see more detail.
