Taken with meade LX200 ACF telescope as lens (2500mm focal length ) and canon 5dmark ii .

This is my ongoing Moon phase project, this started out at approx half of an (average) months worth of the moon's different phases.....but it is growing!.

Our Natural Satellite "rises" approximately 50 minutes later every night, so getting a full months Moon phase has proved impossible to achieve in the same month, add to this cloudy nights (and "day" Moon's).........as I get new phases I will add them to the composite.

To nights moon,

haven't done a moon shot in a while,its so bright to night couldn't resist.

A full moon was rising over a misty sky as the sunlight lit up the misty cirrus clouds that gave a vivid orange glow to contrast with the blue night and white reflections. The moon controls are ocean tides and is our only satellite the firth largest one in our solar system. It takes 29 days to orbit the earth. It is about 92 million miles away. It is about 1/4 the size of earth and is more egg shaped then round. There is no atmosphere and no wind and temperatures can vary from from 253° F (123° C) to -387° F (-233° C). Humans landed on the moon in 1969 and brought back moon rocks. One human had there ashes sent to the moon on a spacecraft in 1999. The moon inspires lovers, poets, scientists, artists and many songs. Sometimes I want to give the moon a big hug and say thanks for being there to reflect the sun and help us tell time and just looking cool.

I cropped the actual shot and it seems closer than using 200mm coz its 10.2 Megapixels =)

Couldn't wait to try out the super zoom on a nice clear night...

Full Moon - February 27th, 2010

The weathervane on our shed superimposed on a full moon.

Moon in the morning - full optical zoom + 4x digital = 2240mm

The only semi-acceptable shot of the moon that I've taken. I adjusted contrast and sharpened extremely slightly in photoshop. I cropped out a lot though so the pic will be smaller. Still probably easiest to see detail in largest format. Any suggestions? I'd love to get one of those telescope connector things.

Full moon. Snapped through telescope. June 15, 2011.

The full moon Friday night will be the biggest one of the year as Earth's natural satellite reaches its closest point to our planet.

 

Earth, the moon and the sun are all bound together by gravity, which keeps us going around the sun and keeps the moon going around us as it goes through phases. The moon makes a trip around Earth every 29.5 days. But the orbit is not a perfect circle.

 

The moon's average distance from us is about 238,855 miles (384,400 km). Friday night it will be just 221,560 miles (356,567 km) away. It will be 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during the year, according to NASA.

Blue moon, you saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own

Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for

You heard me saying a prayer for

Someone I really could care for

 

And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will hold

I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"

And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold

 

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

 

And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will ever hold

I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"

And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold

 

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

 

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

Practising with my new X2 Converter added to my 400 Zoom, manual focus only...a real challenge with my astigmatised left "eyepiece" eye through my grubby glasses.

I did use a monopod, which helped a bit...

Beautiful moon in the sky.

The Moon

 

by Robert Louis Stevenson

 

The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;

She shines on thieves on the garden wall,

On streets and fields and harbour quays,

And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees.

 

The squalling cat and the squeaking mouse,

The howling dog by the door of the house,

The bat that lies in bed at noon,

All love to be out by the light of the moon.

 

But all of the things that belong to the day,

Cuddle to sleep to be out of her way;

And flowers and children close their eyes

Till up in the morning the sun shall arise.

Shot of full moon as seen from Dallas-Fort Worth area on a cool winter night with my new 300mm lens. Shutter priority, 1/400 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200, 300mm. I added a little color for artistic effect. Thanks for the lens, Mike.

Orion Europa 250 telescope - first look at the moon and photos with this telescope

 

Prime lens

The moon didn't show up in our sky on the Super Blue Blood Moon day. Clouds were so heavy.

 

Two days later, it finally popped out. So naughty. Still very bright.

 

Top-left part is already missing (on your moon, right-side starts shrinking, check it out tonight).

 

Moon behaves differently between North and South.

I am always fascinated.

The Wolf Moon is a full moon that occurs in January. Its name comes from hungry wolf packs that would howl outside the villages of Native Americans. This full moon is also known as the Old Moon or the Moon After Yule.

 

It was 5 degrees when I bundled up and went out to get this shot.....but it was well worth it, the moon was huge and bright!

I realized there was a full moon last night right as I was getting ready to go to bed. I went out and spent a few minutes trying to shoot the moon anyway. I think I hit it. ;) It's shining pretty bright so you don't get the edges with this one but I got a nice detailed moon nonetheless that will make a lovely object for layering when I want a moon.

 

This is straight out of the camera except for a crop.

 

Updated because I just realized I never posted the info:

Not a full moon, you can see the craters to the right where the sun shines on the last bit of the moon.

Used a tripod.

  

Slowly recovering from an operation.

 

Have a great day.
