Ok so its not 100% sharp, I need a new tripod!! but its not bad for a first attempt...
Quite a good attempt! Many people try to get moon shots pin sharp but, just like a landscape, it isn't!
Would you share what lens/settings you used for this?
I think for your first attempt you did great. I like the way that you framed this...makes it that much better, even though its not tac sharp! Good work
thank you!! settings are ISO 800, 1/60 sec, manual exposure. Lens I used was my 100-400L at 400mm with my bower 2x teleconverter (with the crop factor approx 1300mm focal length equiv..)
And a hefty tripod!
That's quite a setup! My own scopr is only 750mm/f4 at prime focus, 1500mm/f5.6 (approx) with a 2X Barlow on!
Then we get into the silly numbers/calculations for eyepiece projection!
The moon is one of my most favorite to try and capture. To me, it's intriguing. One capture just isn't enough. Good job for your 1st attempt. And, yes, a tripod is a necessity. Thanks for sharing!
I also think for a fist attempt-good job! I do think the framing does help make the shot. Thanks for sharing.
