    Here are just a few moon pictures. I think they look kind of cool.

    I'm going to take a chance and guess she used a camera. :D

    Hehe, but all seriousness aside the moon is actually kinda difficult. Those turned out pretty good. I think the moon makes a good lens test subject. I guess your lens is fairly HQ.

    Nice work.

    You know I can't even remember its been so long ago I think I took these back in feb. I do know that I used my 70-300mm lens. I'll have to look up all the settings. Thanks I'm glad that you liked them.

    Hey Toni,

    Can I edit one of your images? I want to show how much detail of the moon's surface can be revealed from shots like this. It'd be fine if the answer is no too tho.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, gotta disagree on this. I think your processing brought out a lot of noise rather than features. While I agree that some simple Levels/Curves and maybe a tiny bit of sharpening would help the original image (like the ejecta blanket around Copernicus), a lot of what you brought out is granular noise.

    I do agree that the script did cause a lot of noise, but if we forget that is the moon, and think of it as a moon, it looks much better. I like that you can see many more formations after the script, but since it is an object which we can see so clearly by stepping out the door, I think the noise hurts it a little more than any other planetary object.
