HI..This is  my first post. I hope when I click on 'post'  with the url from Tinypic  (also a first) the  image will appear.  Apologies if it fails. It's a photo of the moon taken on Wednesday from my garden.  I used an 82mm Pentax spotting scope with a 14mm Hyperion eyepiece and a 14mm extention tube.The camera was the Canon 350D with a 28mm f2.8 lens.and remote cable.  It was taken at ISO 400,f5.6 and a rather too slow,I fear ,1/30 sec .I intend getting proper equipment for this and shoot prime.

Thanks for  your comments . I'm hoping to improve a lot on that photo. I've just had some new instructions re. posting the actual  photo .  I'd  selected the wrong box in Tinypic. If you don't mind I'll just try it once more and see if I can get the actual image. Thanks for your patience.

The original image  has the  whole moon showing, I see there's a slice off it here . Could I have avoided that when posting ? I selected the 15 " screen size  800 x 600. There's message Board 640 x 480 and for websites 320 x 245.

Hi John

It's great to have you on here!. Welcome to the forum and thanks very much for sharing your Moon capture which is very good indeed. Glad you got the hang of of tinypic. I'm not sure why the whole Moon isn't showing, maybe some of the guys on here could shed some light on that issue. It might be something to do with the way tinypic compresses the image for uploading.

Clavius and Plato look mighty fine!  Smiley

John, that's very impressive and look as if it would take a tasteful amount of sharpening very well - the detail is definitely there!

And of course, welcome to the forum, it's great to have you here!

Paul.
