Moon - a humble first try

Post by Bissgets »

Hi

I stumbled upon this forum and I really like how (most of) you say really nice things about photos made by astrophoto greenhorns

as I am a true greenhorn, I can't help myself: here's my moon!

With a stationary telescope , focal length of 700mm and the tiny chip in the Neximager , it was a fine effort to get 100 frames for stacking. Well done! 8)

Imbrium's attractions..

Post by brian livesey »

The rays emanating from Copernicus show up well in the photo. Isn't it surprising how,when observing the Moon,we're so often drawn to the Imbrium Basin?
It must have something to do with the sheer variety of lunar features in this region.
