20th March "Super Worm" Moon

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure where all these odd names for the full moon are coming from? Apparently last night was a worm moon??? Regardless happy first day of spring everyone...here's my moon from last night :)

 

Taken with an altair 72EDF Deluxe, GPCAM 290c and 0.5x reducer.

Agreed!

That's a cracking image still, not a worm in sight!

Lovely image. 

I looked it up “As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. For this reason, the March full moon is often known as the Full Worm Moon.”

Hence no worms in sight, the Robins got’em! :)

Nice capture no matter what their calling it...indeed. Cool though the moon has become a media sensation, I do get a chuckle from some of the names and the worm thing is no exception ?

Great capture.
Regarding the names. I tend to let them all pass me by but as this seems media driven at least it might make more of the public aware of what's "up there".

      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

      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.
