    Once in a blue moon!

    Just a quick follow-up, not sure it's better but a bit of fun anyway.

    anyway heres my little moon from tonight, about 20 minutes ago... LOL

    Jeff - what type of telescope do you have??? My dad bought one a few years ago an Orion SkyView Pro 8" EQ Reflector ... its amazing here it is here its a little too powerful for the moon and very non portable...
    About my telescope, i've a maksutov 6", 1500 mm focal length. Strange that you found the skyview Pro 8" too powerful for the moon because this telescope has only 1000mm focal length. The powerful is done mainly by the eyepiece. With a higher focal length eyepiece (30mm for example) you could surely have the entire moon in field of this telescope.

    help please?

    Hi,
    Could anyone here with a dslr post a few uncropped pictures of the moon at 320mm, 450mm OR 480mm, and 640mm? To be more clear, those values are after the 1.5 or 1.6 crop factor. Or 200mm, 280mm, 300mm, and 400mm before a 1.6x crop factor. The reason I am asking is because I am trying to decide which telephoto lens to buy next. I chose to use the moon to compare focal lengths because it seems to be roughly the same size from most places unless it is very close to the horizon. So even if the picture is not of a full moon and the picture is compressed to a low quality, it will do just fine as long as the moon is not too close to the horizon and therefore larger than usual, and picture is uncropped so that I can compare itís size to the frame. Thank you all very much!

    Great shot, but, i would crop the picture so theres more moon and less empty space, just my opinion.

    As wonderful as the giant moon pics are, its quite a refreshing change to see a "life size" one. Beautiful.

    As soon as I get a clear night here, I'll try to get a moon shot with my new S2. Meanwhile, here's an old photo I took with the FZ5:

    F/3.3; 1/80; ISO 80; 432 mm (35 mm equiv.)

    Nice looking moon shots. I notice you said you used unsharp mask. As a novice to digital manipulation what does the unsharp mask do and why would you use it rather than use the sharpen tool?
