My first attempt at the moon

Recommended Posts

Here is my first attempt at the moon from last night. I think I'm pretty pleased with it.

I'd welcome any comments or suggestions on how to improve upon it.

It was taken with my 10" LX200 ACF, using a Meade F/6.3 focal reducer (to get it all in shot) and a Canon 70D DSLR. I used a 1/320 shutter speed.

Thanks for all the comments. I just need to wait for another clear night now to get some more pictures!

Superb first shot! :)

Tips-wise, I think two biggies are: reduce any camera shake (I think I used mirror lock when I used my DSLR, to help out there) and take multiple shots and stack them using software like Registax. Not sure if you are doing those already.
