    I think this is the best I can get with the equipment I have without connecting to a telescope. (or buying a large mirror lens!)

    Taken with a Praktica BC1 with 210mm Zoom + 2X converter at F4.5 & 1/60 sec on tripod a couple of nights ago.

    If you also have images of the recent moon please feel free to post in this thread! There should be quite a few a lot better than mine!:lol:

    That's a nice shot! There is quite a lot of space (pardon the pun) to the right of the moon so a little crop might be good, but other than that it's a really good shot! Half in darkness half light it works well!

    There's a very faint Earthshine on the right side of the moon so I didn't want to crop it too close. You can just about make out the dull outline of the full moon which is very faintly lit by the Earth.

    Can't remember exactly, Sorry.

    Crop and zoom has been added above, below original.
