Some Moon Close ups


Recommended Posts

The high cloud & poor sseing tonight made any observing a bit hit & miss.

The moon is one target that can get you a reasonable image based in these conditions.

Here are 4 close up of the Moons North East side. I tries to get progressively closer in.

Great stuff Ian, I think the high cloud might be responceable for the smoothness of the images A but like a photographer would use a filter to make a models skin look softer, although I'm likely to be talking a loud of rubbish so I will shut up now :lol::)

Really nice lunar images Ian I am starting to feel guilty about not going out and having a crack at it myself now if this is the kind of quality that can be got from these conditions I must try harder

THanks for your efforts mate

I must try harder
