Museum of the Moon

Recommended Posts

I've just seen the travelling Museum of the Moon exhibition in Leicester, and I highly recommend it. It's a high resolution 7 metre diameter 3D model of the moon that you can walk around, and it's simply gobsmacking. I took along my Vixen 2.1 x 42 super-wide angle binoculars, and Pentax Papilio 6.5 x 21 close-focussing binoculars and spent hours looking it over - great views of both near side and far side. I think it's in Leicester for another week, and in Glasgow for an extended period starting some time in May. If you're into lunar observation you'd be crazy to miss it.

Thanks @munirocks, I visited it today. Long trip but glad I went!

It was the last day of the exhibition so it was pretty busy. Nice to see so much interest. Richard III's tomb was also excellent.

      Posting in this forum after too long!
      One of the first attempts at taking photos of the moon.
      All photos taken using skywatcher 90mm refractor with eq2 mount, Nikon DSLR and 2x Barlow here and there.
      No exposure.
      Basic editing in cellphone.
      Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!

      Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold. 

      7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little.
      Camera: Canon 600D
      Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
      ISO: 800
      Shutter speed: 1/400s

      One image of Vallis Alpes, witht he large craters Arsitoteles and Eudoxus.
      Rima Hyginus, with lower in the image Triesnecker and Rimae Triesneckes to the right of it.
      The Apennines. A large mountain range. This is a two panel mosaic.
      and last byt not least a high res image of the lunar terminator from the Large crater Ptolemaeus all the way to the South pole.
      All images made using CFF CC300 f/20 and asi 174MM at prime focus. An Astronomik proplanet 807 filter was used to stabilize seeing.
      Enjoy the images, and feel free to share your toughts, comments etc. All images are also visible on my Astrobin page.
