I was thinking with the moon being as close as it has been since 1993. We need to get some good pics of it over the coming week or so,but it certainly doesn't have to be limited to the next week. There have been a lot of threads about the moon on ATS lately and there should be lots of interest. I however do not own a telescope or camera worthy of getting decent shots of the moon. So I am here asking for the help of you ATS!

Here is a good site for determining where the moon is and its phases based on location.

Here are a couple pics I found for inspiration.

Saturn will also be nicely visible in the NH, until like mid-april. I was thinking about get a few pics of her too. How many amateur astronomers are on ATS anyway?

Nice thread and I'm posting two photos to contribute it.

These photos are taken with my small lunar telescope with my Canon 12mpx digital camera from my balcony.

I didn't wanted to resize them to a smaller images I hope its ok and you like it.





Lets see what others taken? From a bigger/better telescope!

Hey there, haven't posted on ATS in a long while!


But here is a pic of the moon of mine, very amateur. I got a telescope as a christmas gift and literally put a digital camera to the viewing lense to take this picture.

There is really nothing quite as beautiful though, as seeing the Moon with your own two eyes, I count myself very lucky for this

I would love to see an ATS section for this type of stuff.

I think it would be a hit.

I've been out many times this month hoping to get some night footage, but the sky here has been a weird reddish color, and not clear at all.

I'm also in the market for a new video camera. Would be nice if you guys who do night filming would mention
your camera's ( video or digital) and what equipment if any you use.

I use an IR modded samsung SDC-435 and 8" LX200 Classic. Here's what the raw video looked like when filming Aristarchus:

WOW
I have been searching my heart out to find a thread like this .. I don’t have the money or equipment at the wonderful things you all are able to do .. I have some questions ok I am a Moon Nut Head .. Anything an everything that has to do with the moon ..

Is there any way someone can have a live streaming cam attached to your telescope so that we MOON lovers can watch also I am into trying to spot UFO's There is a map of the hot spots for UFO sightings but still in order to do this one must live away from a city there are instructions as to why this is important does anyone watch the night sky live streaming from there telescope?? I have only been able to watch Earth cams atm and geese the only one of any good is at Yellowstone as I could find

I've been reading about people using the black part of exposed 35mm film to put over their digital camera's sensor so they can see infrared.

I made a cardboard cap and put a hole in the end where I put the black 35mm film piece over it. I put that over the end of the telescope a couple days ago and the moon looked a weird bluish with the outer ring around it being brighter. The next full moon I'll have the digital camera ready to attach to the telescope.

I have no idea if I am truly seeing in "infra-red"...but the experiment was neat none the less. It would likely be easier to see something strike the moon with such a filter set up.

Sure:
www.ustream.tv...
Pre-recorded shows are up there, I do live broadcasts when time and weather permit.

You're forgetting a very important step; you must first remove the infrared blocking filter from your digital camera. How you do that or if it's feasible at all will depend on the exact camera. All the exposed film does is block out most visible light, it doesn't increase the amount of infrared light detected by the camera at all.

I actually took a picture and video of the moon last night. The shots turned out pretty well. I used a 10 inch dob reflector.

great pics everyone .... and I love the idea

what sort/model/type of telescope would you need to get pictures of the moon that would give enough detail to see something say 10 foot high sat in a crater? and how much would it cost?

cheers
