I got up early to catch some still air. Taken through my little refractor, with XTi.

Thanks for looking!

I was going to photograph the moon at 4am too, but I got distracted, sleeping. ;)

This is an incredibly detailed photo !!...

I am curious -through the reflector- what the general shot conditions were (shutter, ISO, fstops, EXIF in general). The details just blow me away.

Fantastic !!!

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice view. I really like looking at the upper left limb of the Moon in this shot. You can see Mare Orientale and some of the mountainous regions of the inner terraces of this giant multi-ringed impact basin. At first I wasn't sure if the rugged limb was just turbulent atmosphere close to home until I took a closer look and confirmed that that was the region around Orientale. I can stare at the Moon for hours..... BTW, if you'd like to identify some of the features on the Moon and see what will be visible on a given night or time, you might like to download the free version of Virtual Moon Atlasexternal link

A refractorexternal linkis a telescpe that uses a lens for its objective and is probably the most common small telescope. A reflectorexternal linkis a telescope that uses a mirror to collect and focus light. Refractors actually tend to be longer focal length giving higher magnification than their shorter forcal length reflector cousins. At the same time, most large telescopes (the 200 inch at Mt. Palomar, the Large Binocular Telescope on Mt. Graham, etc.) are reflectors because a big refractor is very large by comparison.

Hey Mike, maybe you could post a pic of the rig you used, for illustration purposes.
