The moon as I saw it
Wednesday, 18 May 2011
This weekend the skies were clear and I got out my kit to snap a handheld photo of the moon. It turned out quite well and the result is viewable here now. Both the Copernicus Crater and Mare Insularum is plainly visible a bit to the left of the center. The picture was shot handheld late at night with my Canon EF-S IS 55-250 which is seemingly performing well for its low price. The next time I hope to have enough sense to use the tripod, and perhaps buy a 2x extender or longer lens.
Now if I only get a transport to the moon I could get the shot i always wanted: Earth seen from the moon. Please give me call; I will credit you in my photos if you arrange the transport.
