The super moon with a nikon DSLR


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Here is my attempt at shooting the super moon yesterday. It has been more than 2 years since I made a lunar image. 200 shots with a nikon D90 pulled through registax, touch ups in PS CS5. Telescope was a TeleVue Np101 @ f/16.2.

I have tried to proces the colours to show the different rock sediments on the surface.

Hope you like it!

Many regards,

Gone abit overboard wih the colour in my one but, yours looks spot on, you shoud be pleased with that!

Yours is very good! The colour on the right hand side is good, but a little oversaturated on the left hand side. You could fix this easily in PS I guess.

This is excellent! It seems to jump off the screen at you! You have really captured the luminosity and shine of the moon at the eyepiece and the colours look perfect! Well done.
