Looking at the excellent crop of pictures that are here for our pleasure, I have been trying to find the various named portions on the snaps that I have taken, mostly without success. Most recently I was struggling with a string of big craters that just HAD to be there, but I couldn't find them on the maps that I have.

Eureka moment this evening was finding the Mare Nectarius picture. It looked so much like mine but so different, then BOING, mine's the other way round! A reflection of the image

So what gives? I don't remember having the camera on backwards, nor did i flip anything in photoshop. How in the cloudy did I manage that?

Pictures were taken with the DSLR on the OMC140 with a Barlow - any theories are welcome as I am baffled (and pleased that I only need to flip the pictures)

I think i catch ya drift the reason for this is i used a corrected diagnol on the Refractor(Things the right way up or left or right), it is confuseing at first CC and i can see why you wouldnt know..

Your images are the same as the maps. So everybody except me got it wrong? Don't think so!

I wasn't using a diagonal, camera was straight on the back of the ....... penny dropped I think. I DID use a diagonal, to get further away from the Barlow to up the Mag. That must have been where it happened.

That means that the Moontage that I posted is all the wrong way round. :oops:

If your worries CC, just use the mirror image command in PS.

All sorts of weird things can happen depending on the type of scope you use, if you use a barlow. It's different again if you use EP projection!

All good fun.

I still like the picture, it just REALLY messed with my head when I tried to identify some of the craters and stuff. None of my stuff looked even close to what was on the maps. Now that I know I can check the maps fit the picture before I finish playing (do we ever finish playing?) in Photoshop.

BTW Thanks for not laughing
