Nice pictures though Smile

Wow, super up close photos. Very Happy
Sometimes I wish I had a telescope... or just something to look at the night sky with. The last time I tried photographing the moon, it was at 200mm -__- (the farthest my zoom lens can go to).

Really fun! Do you have a problem with my linking to them in the image section of AstroTwister.com?

Honestly... I've never seen pictures so close that were taken from the ground. Really good work!

When I take pictures of the moon I, of course, use a different set of settings to capture the detail of the moon, and then a take other pictures of the same scene to fill in the landscape details and then I photo shop the scene together and it looks more like what your eye sees. I'll have to see if I can dig up an example.

Good work though... I understand the time messing with settings that was spent to capture these shots.

Hi,

thanks for sharing those pictures.
Though looking from earth moon look pretty good , the real face is full of deep dry well
formed by falling of wandering objects in space.

I never realised just how big some of those craters were.....Capernicus 93kn wide Shocked ...that's pretty big....I'm glad I wasn't underneath the thing that hit it to make that (if it was indeed made by debris hitting the moon?)

thanks for sharing your fotos, i really do like them, to have a short imaginary walk on the surface of the moon. also the short clip of the moon passing is quite fantastic, like sort of a science fiction, but this time it is true...

Moon is a beautiful object created by god. Moon is very useful for human as basic system of lunar calendar (12 months is 1 year).
mukesh

He did it with a telescope.. b.t.w. I had to click "older" on the page to see them now. Great pictures !

And I like the last one too.. the Tsjernobinsk impact.. interesting to see that asteroid strike from such a great height..
