The moon is very big this night, very bright and full - I can see why it was held with reverence in the days of old.

I'm pretty sure the moon is a she, no?

Hopefully she holds together....Looking a bit wobbly

you should get your mount autoguided or motor driven - it would be easier to video stack avi's.
nice shots - didn't see anything untoward over the last few nights myself - I've also been imaging the moon.

edit - How you attach the imager to the camera can give you different perspectives as well.

What if it's not that moon that's tilting. What if it's us? That would still cause a relative shift in the tilt of the moon from our perspective.

I'm not sure how to calculate these things but here are some resources for those so inclined.

Maybe I'm totally missing the point, but for the moon to shift in a clockwise direction, wouldn't the Earth have to shift in a counterclockwise direction?

It all depends on what ancient culture you are talking about. For the Egyptians, the Sumerians, the Hittites, the Japanese and the Akkadians, the moon was male. For China, Greece and Rome, the moon was female.

what mag lense did you use? 20x etc?

Good viewing though!


What type of cam did you use to capture the footage over usb? I have a Celestron 70x refractor. Although it's not the greatest telescope, it does give some awesome viewing of the Moon and some planets. When Venus came close in the latter part of last year and start of this year, it made some for good viewing. Even watching Jupiter, the moons are visible on good nights with a 4x lense.

Iv'e been trying to find a good cam to capture the Moon on, any advice would help

You're correct. The apparent tilting of the Moon's axis is due to the Earth's shape and the fact that we are spinning. From our point of view on Earth the Moon appears to rotate its axis as it moves across the sky causing many to speculate wildy as to the cause of this effect. This is simply a normal product of a 3 dimensional perspective.
