First moon shot

Postby rclarke80 » Wed Nov 16, 2016 4:29 pm

Hi folks,

So I finally got the scope out, only in the back garden, to have a look at the moon. Learnt quite a bit about the lenses that came with the scope and ran a few images off with my dslr.

ImageMoon by Richard Clarke, on Flickr

A few things I noticed was the bottom of the images wasn't as sharp as the rest, would that be because of the atmosphere as that was the lowest point in the sky? Would that improve on a colder night too?

Also the size difference of the subject as compared with using either of the lenses. Can extenders be used with a dslr to effectively zoom in?

Kind regards,

Rich.
