I apologise, i did not mean for that to come across as sarcastic. I wasn't sure if you had forgotten to write a question. To be honest your video really does show the scale of epic that the moon resides at. Star.

Cool, I think I have one of those, or a comparable one. Looks to the lowest setting. At least on mine, the lowest magnification puts the moon in full field of view. Incidentally when I lived at 'the farm' I had 300 yards to the river tree line we used to drive golf balls towards. At 300 yards, 900 feet, I could get a golf ball to fill the field of view at the highest setting, and actually read Titleist!

Look, we all are personally proud of our personal projects and seemingly accomplishments. But really, to post something like this on ATS and want praise is a bit over-wishful thinking I'm thinking.

I found nothing great or good in your shaky image that required my several seconds of attention that I did give to it on the outside chance that perhaps it was something of substance.

And you should be made aware that the word "moon" is spelled with a capital M=Moon.

You have half learned your lesson. Next, produce something that is worthy of our attention and positive comments.

Oh, another lesson is that you can't demand a certain type of response.

Listen, im not going to play games or argue like children, all i wanted to do was to share a little something
with the community and ask for some constructive criticism . Im sorry your life is so messed you have to try to make yourself look smart by degrading others. If you feel the need to teach "lessons" please do it elsewhere.

The one odd thing that seemed to stand out is the shadow line,seems like someone just stuck a piece of paper across the moon, for effect.
