First go at Lunar Photography the other night

Recommended Posts

So for the first time since getting my telescope the other month I have attached my SLR onto the telescope and taken a few photos and a video of the moon. Hope you all like....

Nice shots. The Moon looks so rough when you see it like that.

You must be thrilled.... but you are now officially on the slippery slope of astrophotography!

Yea I was really chuffed actually, I've had to edit them a bit in Adobe Lightroom but other wise really happy. The video I took was pretty cool as well but the file size is too big to post on here

You might want to take your video and run it through something like AutoStakkert 2, and then adjust 'Wavelets" in Registax.  Both of these programs are free, and you'll find tutorials easily (YouTube for example).  You might get a pleasant surprise.
