There have been a few discussions of late on the issue of why stars are not visible in some photos purported to have been taken on the Moon or in
The standard photographic explantion has been ignored by those seeking to find a conspiratorial angle to the subject. However, in defence of the
photographic explanation, I offer the following images taken this evening. In each case, one focused on the Moon at a fast exposure, the other taken
at a more lengthy (15 sec) exposure as comparison.
The point being: if you wish to see detail on a bright object like this Moon you use a fast exposure setting and no stars are visible. If you want to
show stars you use a longer exposure setting and the Moon (or Earth or whatever) is overexposed and no detail can be seen.
All pictures were taken in the space of a few minutes, this evening (in fact about 15 minutes before I started this post), from the same location - my
front door. None have been altered other than reduced/sharpened using Irfanview software.
Thus I content that stars would not be expected to be seen in images where a bright object - such as the Moon reflecting sunlight - was intended to be
shown in detail.
I hope this helps discussion on the matter
the presence of what appears to be Nibiru in the longer exposure images is another matter
