Oh I have some images of deep space objects, but you really want to get higher quality for those. Mine are respectable but only taken withe 8 inch scopes or less. I have m42 fairly decent, but if you are after size and quality the hubble is king of the hill.

Just a single image out of about 16 candidates.

Was great conditions though, rare for here, none of that edgy blurs you usually pickup from the atmosphere.

The moon was extremely bright and quite beautiful to gaze at, but I cut it short due to it being a bit cold.

I can't get a look at yours, the link is timing out on me.

Would like to see it very much.

good pic, can I ask? why is the exif info not showing the F stop and the focal distance? also what lense was used on your canon?


posted on Oct, 6 2009 @ 05:01 PM
Nice picture mate, may you also post some other pictures? From other planets/deep space objects, etc.

BTW, how much did your camera cost?

I'm really looking forward to buy a camera/telescope myself, but I'm no expert, so I'm really not sure what to choose. My budget isn't very high either. What do you suggest?

The reason they don't show is the camera is in manual mode. The lens is an eight inch newtonian telescope at F6.

Hope that helps.

Advice on telescopes...can be tricky....most important part of the telescope is the mount.

I would put my money into a good quality mount, then get any telescope within reason to go on the mount.

Best buy for the buck is a newtonian on a dob mount but would need a lot of bucks later when you want to go for deep sky imaging.

Your options are much better than mine were for cameras now. Dslr's are very nice as long as you can get full manual control.

My dslr was $1200 when I bought that was a few years back, I think they have come done in price some since.

Dedicated astronomy cameras start out around $500 and up, they do very well, but you can't take a portrait of the family with them easily!

Best thing to do is find an astronomy club close to you and look at and through the various types the members use. Most don't mind helping you in deciding whats best for your budget.

Hope this was helpful.

Edit: correct spelling

Am I seeing things or is that green on the moon?

Cool picture... Much better then those nasa pictures.

posted on Oct, 6 2009 @ 06:20 PM
AWESOME!!!! I love looking at the moon and I only wish I had a camera to take pix like this! I sit outside nightly and stare at her beauty. Thanks for sharing this!

posted on Oct, 6 2009 @ 07:01 PM
Thats a very cool image! I want to get a telescope of my own. How much detail f the galaxy can you see with a standard telescope say 300-500 dollars?

posted on Oct, 6 2009 @ 07:06 PM
Im going to ask a really amateur question here, but has anybody taken pics of the entire moon? I ask this because i have read that we only see one side of the moon. Is there any photographs of the side facing away from the earth, if there is EVEN such a side.

I'm majoring in Graphic Design.. and after doing some color balancing I came up with this.

Nice photo by the way!

That's odd, I'm not sure why it's timing out. Here's the link to the full flickr page for that image:
In case that doesn't work, here's a similar image I took of the moon almost two years ago and only recently got around to stacking:

The only adjustment made after stacking was noise filtering in Neat Image and cropping.

Look at all those bright spots on the moon....remind me of cities at night from the sky....hmmm

Greetings Alaska Man,

Maybe you didn't right click it, if you right click it you will see an option for download, its bigger than my desktop which is 1280 X 800, its approx 1700 X 1700. Does that help?


i indeed did, but at the time you only had a small photo posted, your since then edited it and posted a larger one.

thank you for posting the larger one

There is no green cheese??? I am just bummmed!! wah wah

Great pic! Are you going to try to capture the bombing?

300-500 could be difficult. Very few telescopes in the lower part of that price range are worth anything at all. Here's one for 280 that's a good starter scope, but you won't be able to take any pictures with it:
With a 6" scope you can see a fair amount of detail in the orion nebula and with practice in star hopping and averted vision spot plenty of faint fuzzy galaxies that don't show any real detail other than general shape.

There are many pictures taken of the far side. You can download Google Earth as it also has the Moon in it now. (you can also view it here) There are many photos taken by the various probes that have orbited the Moon. There are even HD videos of the far side taken by JAXA's Kaguya orbiter. (link).

Nice stuff here.

I ran your image through a moon filter.
