 if we can see galaxies at the very edge of the universe billions of light years away why can’t we see objects on the Moon that’s only 240,000 miles away? I try to explain about resolving power and so on but may as well talk to a budgie. 

 

 

 

At least budgies know enough not to try try to argue about fundamental physics.

When trying to explain such things to people without necessary background - I find useful to use direct analogy and example. Ask them if they can spot an ant on that tree that is only 50 feed awa

You should be able to get sharper by stacking and processing. I did this a year ago April, using a 6" f87 - my 150PL. A good target is to aim to get Aldrin, Collins and Armstrong craters. CXoolin

Took this one at fifty years to the second from original landing with 10"SCT. Forgot to crop it. Dave

I got this using my old mobile phone held by a cheapo clamp to the eyepiece in my 12 inch F/5.3 dob. It's not the Apollo 11 landing site but the Apollo 15 one next to the Hadley Rille. For scale, the rille is about 1,500 metres across. I'm not any sort of imager and I'm sure that a proper lunar imager could do lots better but I was quite pleased with it for a casual snap. No sign of the Lunar Rover though - it must have been clamped and towed away ...... :icon_jokercolor:

I'm assuming that you guys are calling people "budgies" because you have a degree (or some kind of formal education) when it comes to "Law of Physics", right?? Facebook doesn't count...
