Moon by 180mm Mak and first time ASI174MM

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is my best so far moon shot was taken last month, it was the first time testing my new camera, ZWO ASI174MM, i know the camera is amazing without the test, but it is nice to see the results anyway.

Thanks!

That is exactly why i bought this camera, in addition, i will use it for planetary, i saw big names such as Damian Peach using this camera sometimes for planetary.

Honestly I think that's the longest amount of time I've ever spent looking at a single astro picture. Brilliant!

Superb! fine detail is awesome, id say that's what being in orbit looking out a window would be like.

True, i can't resolve all those details by my eyes, but telescope and camera could, and happy for that, thanks

I've never really taken much interest in the moon, but you've inspired me to have a go, thanks. 

Why not, the moon is the easiest clearest and closest target to us, so i always practice on the moon with any camera or telescope for initial test.

Thank you.

I saw this image over on cloudy nights when you posted it initially and I thought it was a shame that I couldn't see it at full resolution over there.  Now I can see it in all it's glory and it really is a wonderful image... If this were my own image I would definitely get it printed out and displayed on my wall!

Just seen this image and I like others have said spent a lot longer looking around it than many images I have seen before.
Like observing on the very best night ever.

That is a great idea, maybe i have to collect my best moon shots and printed them out either in one picture as collage or maybe individual, i have to think about it.

You have no idea how long i kept looking at the moon on the screen, i was shocked, then i woke up and figured out that the moon is getting lower, so i gave it a quick images before it is all down.

Why people afraid or scared to do lunar, it is really beautiful.

Thanks
