The Moon


Flight959

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share this with you guys!!

 

Took it last night on a Canon 7D with 400mm Sigma lens.

 

Hand held! :-)

 

Great detail on the right hand side!

 

Although its still being debated.. Those are not stars around the moon! Noise or dust on the cameras sensor!

and what a better way for me to work in a Blind Owl tune...hehe ( forgive my guilty pleasures )

 

 

he wrote this song because of his concern for the environment and the moon...he was a conservationist long before it was " cool " to be one..RIP Owl.

Ever since I was a kid

You sure looked good to me

Now I'm a man

full-grown, and I

Know what I hate to see

(Oh well)

It might be tomorrow

(Oh well)

I just don't know

(Oh well)

It might take years

I wonder when

they're going to

Destroy your face

It may seem silly,

but I don't like

What's been coming down

'Cause you've been

looking good too

long

To change your colour now

(Oh well)

They might test some bomb

(Oh well)

And scar your skin

(Oh well)

I don't think they care, so

I wonder when

they're going to

Destroy your face

I hope I see you in the sky

At night when I get old

I hope you'll look

about the same

As when I was a boy

(Oh well)

It gets me to gasping

When I think about

(Oh well)

What they might do

I wonder when

they're going to

Destroy your face

Well, you sure look good

In the sky at night

And it's sad to say

You won't shine so bright

Some day

When they're through with you

I bet you've seen the

cloud we make

That covers up L.A.

I wonder if you'll

hide behind

A shroud like that some day

(Oh well)

I'm worried about it

(Oh well)

It makes me sigh

(Oh well)

I just can't help it

I wonder when

they're going to

Destroy your face

(Oh well)

It might be tomorrow

(Oh well)

I just don't know

(Oh well)

It might take years

I wonder when

they're going to

Destroy your face

If any of you can help.....What sort of telescope would I need to look at the moon? How powerful?

I've been looking on ebay, but it's baffling.

The minimum mirror size for anything decent is about 3 1/2". You then would want to buy either a reflector, or a type of reflector called a Cassegrain telescope which has a shorter tube length. It would also include a stand, preferably motorised for accurate tracking, and the whole thing would be quite big.

 

Do not buy a refracting 'spyglass' telescope as you will end up craning your neck all night. I wouldn't buy one on ebay myself either, although I did buy a 2nd hand reflector from a friend who was upgrading. I bought his starter telescope which was a Russian-made Tal, for £100. That included the stand - not motorised - and some basic lenses which weren't incredible but I could see Saturn's rings and the bands on Jupiter. Very enjoyable but the clearest nights are always the coldest ones!

 

Regards!

ISO 3200

Shutter speed was 1/6400

 

Taken in the TV mode. ( time value)

 

Regards

 

As someone else mentioned those specs are noise. Next time you don't need that fast of shutter speed. 1/1000 should be plenty fast enough. Which means you can lower your ISO.
