Outstanding shot Lyndon. Looks to me like you're a natural at this. The full Moon presents the most difficult exposure of all phases, IMO. Regardless of the phase, shooting in manual at 100 or 200 ISO and bracketing exposures will all but guarantee keepers. I find when shooting at a low focal length that focusing on a bright star is a quick and accurate way to reach infinity.

Lots of great shots in this thread, great work everyone. Nice to see so much enthusiasm for Lunar imaging. I haven't done it in a while, been so fixated on deep-sky.

If you're bored and want to browse my shots, here's a couple pages. These are digital taken through various telescopes.

Thanks Nightbound. Your Photobucket gallery is simply amazing. I'd love to do the kind of work your doing there. I've toyed with the idea of setting up for this, but i live 6 miles from Liverpool city centre, and the light pollution is simply too bad:rolleyes:.

Thanks Mike and Painter.

Painter, I travel to a dark site for all shooting these days. In the past few years the large chain stores/fuel stations, etc. have pushed their quest to eliminate darkness closer to my home. It's a shame that so many of the kids today will rarely experience the night sky in all its glory. I can still make it to decent skies in a 20-40 minute drive, but before long moving to a more remote location will be necessary.

You have just reminded me how lucky I am because there isn't any light pollution where I live. In fact we haven't even got any street lights!

Some awesome moon shots here. My question is whats a good setup to purchase for shooting the moon through a telescope with a camera mounted to it.


A little L goes a long way.

If this is directed at me, I have CS3 also and for any noise removal that is necessary I use Noise Ninja. What kind of glass do you have? In my opinion that has alot to do with it. from the start.

1. Is noise ninja a program download or something?
2. What do you mean by "glass"? lens?

Ok , well you might have reached your cameras limits as far as that goes.when you use the optical zoom Im sure that your also losing IQ (image quality) so thats what I would think is your reason for your image questions. Thats just my opinion though I could be wrong.
