Especially cool that you labled the Apollo landing sites!

Yeah, that was fun. The point of the arrows are actually within a few pixels of the landing site - as close as I could get with this resolution. I checked them against a lunar atlas and measured against nearby craters for reference.

To give you an idea of the scale of that image, if you look at the Apollo 11 site and follow to the left and slightly up you'll see two craters side by side. Those craters are about 30km across each, so the resolution in the image is about 1.5km/pixel.

Here is a closeup image using the 2X barlow so you can see the maximum resolution I can attain with this setup (I think this shot was slightly out of focus, though):

This is a region called the "Lunar Apennines." If you look at the Apollo site image, this is the area where Apollo 17 landed. You're looking at a mountain range on the moon. The Apollo landing site is in darkness here, but it's just beyond and to the left of the gap in the range.

The resolution in this image is about 1 km/pixel, as far as I can tell. The big crater to the top right is Aristoteles, and it's about 87 km across.

Dang those come out good. What's the filter? Settings on camera?


I used a 10 stop B&W screw on filter, settings were a mess as it was a quick shot, I'm still waiting on my big stopper filter holder arriving lol.

yeah, he was. It was bagged and had a Honda Ruckus strapped in the bed.

I tried cropping it out, but I didn't like how tight that made the framing on the infiniti.

I agree, the crop would be too tight.

He may be on another forum I'm in that is all Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon owners.

Sure, I'd be happy to share more details.

Currently I'm using a Celestron C90. It's sold as a spotting scope, and it's about $189. But it's a fantastic astronomical telescope for planetary and lunar photography. Its focal length is 1250mm, focal ratio is f/13. I usually use it with a 2X Barlow lens, making it an f/26, 2500mm telescope...

Thank you so much for the thorough response! This is fantastic. Thanks for taking the time to share this with us.

I've been meaning to contribute something to this great thread. Here are some recent hummingbird shots, hopefully someone will find this useful.

Shot with a 5D Mark II in AV Servo with a 70-200 f/2.8L IS. The camera was set to Manual exposure - 1/160, ISO 100, f/9.

A 580EX was set around 1/16th and the 430EX II was around 1/8th - 1/3, IIRC. The flashes were triggered with Pocket Wizards.


The setup:

What time of day were they shot?

They were shot very late in the day, I actually only had around 40-60 minutes of daylight left when starting. I'm hoping to get more chances as the days get longer.

Good to know. I can't remember seeing our hummingbirds come to our feeder that late in the day, but maybe I just haven't noticed. I'm gonna have to try this setup this summer.

Thanks for the informative post!

Super shots. What did you use to compensate for the earths rotation? I couldn't tell if you had any type of clockwork mechanism for the telescope.

Love the hummingbird shots.

No compensation at all. Those pictures were taken on a stock photo tripod with no tracking. The key is to take very short exposures. All the images here were extracted from video taken at around 30fps, so there's no time for the earth's rotation to distort anything. Later on, when you stack the images together the stacking software will re-align all the frames to compensate for their change in position from frame to frame.
