Have you seen that moon!

Recommended Posts

Stunning looking moon! I Hope the storm holds off and we all get to observe it later!! It's currently looking straight through my front window.

Just had a quick look with bin's before the storm arrives, lovely sight in a blue sky.

I'm looking at that moon right now from my window here. Looks rather ghostly here because of thin clouds. Nice sight all the same.

Beautiful isn't it. Had a quick look though the scope but mainly looked naked eye with the 5 year old 😍😍🌕🌕

Alas, thick cloud, wind and rain here as Storm Ciara rolls in... Batten down the hatches!

It looks totally stunning. The combination of it being so low and almost full is a treat to see. The cloud is slowly rolling in now though 🙄

Yep I think it won't be long before it arrives here to. The clear sky a slowly being swallowed up. I set up the 200p hoping for a look at half time in the rugby. Think I will just pack up again now...

Thats a great shot. So much detail. You can really see the difference between this shot and mine from my phone.

Lovely as you say Robert.

Very expensive lens and a bit of Lightroom!

I also had a look at Venus while it was still light. I am really impressed with the visual polarising filter on Venus. It Really helps take the glare away and resolve the disc.

no joy with Mercury tonight though, it had already been covered by the cloud on the horizon

Just had another peek out the window. The sky is crystal clear. Hopefully it stays like that until after the kids are in bed.

Nice shot Stu. No views here in the IOM tonight. Ciara rolled in 3 hours ago. Nice to see what I’m missing 😂

Thats just showing off Stu 😁 great image. How did you take that? I assume with that detail it wasn't the old phone to the eye piece trick 😂

Thanks Barry. I'm afraid it was indeed, handheld at the eyepiece of my 4" apo. The Moon looked lovely through the scope even though it was still quite low.

Nice moon pic . It is surprising how good the old phone at the eyepiece trick works at times. I know I have tried this a few times in the past in the frac. Get the phone in the correct position at the eyepiece and keep the hand steady for a few seconds . Then you can get a real good pic and great detail. Good old mobile phones. Great for a bit of basic AP work 👍
