The Moon
26 June 2004 update

  Since the lunar eclipse on 8 November 2003, I've become interested in astrophotography, and the moon is a welcome target which photographs particularly well if less than full.

And there's nothing quite like practice. My subsequent images to the one posted here at the end of December are much better. Such as the following:

Should you prefer seeing the detail of a relatively nonreduced version of this image, go to this page.

Camera note: I used a Sony F707, an Orion 90mm refractor, and a Scopetronix 40mm eyepiece (which has its own unique attachment for the Sony or other digital cameras).
