how did you get the water blue? there is no blue in your setup shots?

It was shot in RAW and I converted the colours in Photoshop, I also cropped it in a bit. I also boosted the contrast and vibrancy.

i would really wish someone would take a picture of the moon 24/7 and try to find the american flag... lol.. (big believer that the moon landing was fake!)

same here, altho i believe they were there... but anyway, iirc there is no telescope on earth that would magnify enough to resolve the flag or even the car. i always wondered why hubble can't do that, is the moon closer than it's MFD maybe?

oh and btw, we always see the same side of the moon, there is no need to watch it 24/7 ;)

Not sure why, but call me JJ.

thank you for the link. to sum it up, hubble can only resolve items >60m on the moon. not quite impressive, imho, i would've guessed it's better. then again it is quite old, and wasn't designed to spot the trash they left on the moon... ;)

so what's the sharpest telescope on earth, anybody knows?

My setup for small dog photography:

Three White Lightning WL-5000 monolights
1 with shoot through umbrella (camera left)
1 bounced into white umbrella (camera right)
1 bounced into silver umbrella (over subject)
I have been using these lights for over 20-years and originally bought them used for about $50 (U.S. Dollars) each. They are just like the "Energizer Bunny". They keep going and going.

I trigger these lights with a YinYan infrared trigger.

Two standard light stands
One boom stand

Background stand with bar

Black Vellux blanket as background

Grooming table to support dog and rolling office chair from which to shoot (eases strain on my back)

Results:

AMAZING!!

You guys just gotta see this video. It's spectacular!!

Guess I'd better start playing the lottery so I can get me a setup like this too. Are the Sherpa's included (to carry it)?

I'm on an extremely tight budget since I just bought a new lens, but I built this little setup in the basement last week and have been experimenting with a lot of product and stop action type shots over the last few days.

It's pretty simple. A PVC frame to support some black velvet fabric, a shop light that has a clamp for easy positioning, a homemade diffuser for the light made from a cardboard frame, some pieces of wax paper ironed together, and a frosted piece of plastic, and a few pieces of white foamcore for bouncing light. I also only usually use the on camera flash since that's all I have at the moment.

This was the aftermath of my nut cracking shot from last night:

Although no telescope can show clear evidence of the lunar landings, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has now shown images of the landing stages of some of the Apollo Lunar Modules, plus other items, as described here: http://news.cnet.com …19514_3-10289551-239.html (external link)
(though looking at the comments underneath the article, it's never going to be enough to convince everyone!).

As for the sharpest ground-based telescope, that's not such a straightforward answer. Resolution improves with increasing aperture, so it should be the largest aperture telescope - currently the 10-m aperture Keck telescopes (there are two together) in Hawaii. The atmosphere is a serious hindrance to realising the resolution such a large aperture should theoretically be capable of, as anyone who has used a supertelephoto at long distance will be well aware, so "active optics" are used. This is a system where a laser is pointed into the sky to form an artificial "star" whose image gives information about the behaviour of the atmosphere above the telescope. The variations in optical path can be reconstructed at the secondary mirror of the telescope by means of computer-controlled actuators that deform the mirror's shape over the timescale of milliseconds, resulting in a far improved image at the focal plane.

Another factor to resolution is wavelength, so infrared telescopes, or optical ones working at IR wavelengths are capable of improved resolution, and ultimately radio telescopes can resolve incredibly fine detail. On top of this, telescopes can be connected together to work as an interferometer, which gives resolution as if the aperture was equal to the distance between the telescopes. This distance needs to be known within a wavelength of the light being used for imagery, so for radio telescopes it is fairly straightforward and has been in use for many years. It is only very recently that it has been possible with optical telescopes, but it is getting there. I believe the best optical images are now starting to achieve resolutions better than Hubble's, which is only a 2.4m mirror, but has no atmosphere to worry about. So you see - not so straightforward, but I hope this helps.


Mark.
