Tonights Moon Images

Recommended Posts

Well after having a real cack day, getting into abit of trouble and then finding a bat with a busted shoulder I'm feeling abit down in the dumps and depressed. Rather tham mope about feeling like poo, I decided to get the scope out and try to image and identify some craters. I did this for a while until the moon came out.

So heres the pictures.

Where on the moon you can find these fetures.

Really pleased with these, especally as I haven't taken the scope out in months, let alone imaged the moon.

The close up shots was taken at 125x. I have no fancy gizmos to image, I just hold my A70 at the eyepiece and hope for the best!

Really nice images Kain, always impressed with the shots taken by holding up a camera to the eyepiece as I know how tricky that is!

Like the labelling too, very useful and informative!

Thanks for sharing :wink:

Great results again Kain with that faithful handheld camera of yours. I don't know how the hell you do it.

If your hands are that steady, you ought to go in for a surgeons post in a hospital somewhere near you :wink:

he moon's just on the wane now isn't it. I know it was totally eclipsed the other day, but only seen from the Americas and other places not including europe.

Ron. :D

Not the easiest method of capturing good images, so you did well to get that quality of image.

Well done:

Dave
