OK folks-Update time.
Good and bad news.
Good news-Got the moon in good focus all ready to make a movie.
Bad news-Battery indicator flashing red.
Attempt movie anyway.
No worky.Battery auto off...
Extra good news-
Turn the camera back on in picture mode and tried a quick single shot and got the best pic I have yet taken I think.
Then battery failed.
So no movie until tomorrow I am sorry to say.
Any how here is my best effort yet,5pm North Wales-still daylight,but deeper blue sky:
Please use right click, "view image" or"open in new tab to view the whole photo,or you will see nothing.
Used monochrome with 1 less on the brightness setting.
Still not as good as it could be,but I am happy with this one.
Dang frustrated about my battery though,I wanted to try my first moon movie tonight.
Oh well another time..
Lastly,here is a photo my Brother took of my scope getting aligned with the Moon:
Here is the scope with the moon visible in the camera viewfinder.
My Bro is much better at digital photography than I am-I was trained on that old school stuff they call "film."
So its good to have my bro help me with digital advice.
