    Very nice - great exposure and very nice detail. I think that this is the first time one of my shots ever inspired anybody. What I think is pretty cool is that the moon is subject that we all can shoot and share no matter what part of the world we are in.

    It's a lot smaller on film (or screen? :lol: ) than it looks to the eye isn't it!

    What lens did you shoot with and is it cropped?

    Looks like the same position as yours, even though I'm half a world away. Didn't come out quite as nice as the above, but managed to get some detail.

    randog, thanks for inspiration, (and the cool comments) i suppose i never realised that there was a great subject so readilly available.
    plastic spanner, thanks yes you just have to zoom right in on it to get any detail, i used a 300mm lense, and i did crop for detail.
    fpereira, thats a great shot, and thanks for the comments.

    The Moon is a lot harder to shoot well than it looks.

    This is my best ever taken with a Meade ETX 90 telescope from the backyard. 1250mm f13.8.

    I won't share any of my sorry prior attempts.

    [​IMG]Thanks Dalebe.

    With all the Moon pics I thought I would throw in this one of an Apollo module that has orbited the Moon.

    Taken at the USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio....where Eagle's rest.

    God bless our's in harm's way now.
