    Did anyone get a look at the moon tonight? Was HUGE...so awesome!
    Anyone get pics? care to share?

    I was just getting out of class and noticed it.. rushed home to get my camera...took some shots, but I didnt get to it soon enough. Still got some cool shots though.. ( I think..lol) Still working on them. So it was nice practice for me. Too bad, now their just " moon shots"..haha

    Haha.. just thought id share .LOL Not really looking for C/C, but its always welcome...

    I shot most of them in M-mode, or A- Priority.. just messing with settings..
    1/800-1000
    f/5.6
    Iso 800
    center meter...

    ( wasnt sure really where to post this... I know there is a moon theme thread... maybe it can be moved to the right spot,..but hoping its ok.):confused:

    I think the first one is definitely the best. I tried my hand at moon photos through my telescope the other night and got *ok* results, but I need to go buy a proper t-ring and adapter so I can get sharp images instead of the blurry mess I captured. The magnification is still worth displaying though :D

    There's no crop on that at all either :lol:

    Hey, mdtusz, soon you're going to LAND on the moon, eh? ;)

    And PF, no, I did not take any photos of the moon this time (it was partly cloudy last night, anyway), as in the end I find that moon photos tend to look the same after a while... so after I had gone through my stage of "must get a good photo of the moon!" I decided that until I get a telescope (which will never happen, mind you), I'll refrain from taking moon photos.

    Lol, LaFoto, Yeah..I'm getting there. I'm just still siked that I got past the " big white blob" of a moon shot. I realled wanted the shot I aimed for tonight---huge moon coming over the mountain...sun setting...was so gorgeous! But I sped all the way home and still didn't catch it. Oh well. Lol ( Next time!)

    Mine wasn't a telescope. 300mm F4 with a 1.4 extender on a crop body. And yes, the shot was from tonight :)

    My shot was using an 800mm 8 inch light gathering mirror scope combined with a 50mm optical lens (read: 4000mm... I think at least). I got that one by just shooting through the eyepiece which isn't nearly as easy as it sounds. Getting a sharp image is near impossible that way, but once I get a t-ring and adapter, I'll post some sharp pictures of the moon and whatever else I can see clearly in the sky.

    Edit: I just looked up the combined magnification and I was wrong :lol: I don't know how to find the exact focal length of my telescope combined with the eyepiece, but it provides 16x magnification apparently. Seems like more...
