Of course hardly anything beats a real telescope if one want to study the surface of the moon. Here a repost from the old forum, captured by aligning my 55mm f/3.5 micro to the eyepiece of a telescope during an astronomy party, on a rather wobbly tripod arrangement that I had to keep readjusting. I kept the inverted image projected through the telescope.

Hard to beat a telescope, yes. However, your AW! images are pretty sharp too. Keep in mind that the Moon moved about 12.5 m during your 1/80 s exposure  :) (Guess the resolution is of magnitude km rather than meters.)

Seeing all these lovely lunar photos I have decided never to shoot it again :)

Thanks for further comments and contributions.
Don't let this thread be limited to images of the face of the moon. For instance landscape images where the moon is a predominant element is of course also lunar images, if not in the astronomical sense. A couple of examples that was previously posted inn the old forum:

The slightly past full moon showed through a light cloud cover tonight and I could not resist. ;D

Two moons, actually it the same moon ;) over the sea

The first over the Greenland sea. This one could also be in the minimalist images thread.

The second from King Oscard Fjord at north-east Greenland.

There is no illusion, it just looks that way.

Very nice, Asle. I really like the color tones over the Greenland Sea.


Thanks for the kind comment, Peter.

Asle, that is a beautiful moon shot with pleasant color and reflection!

And this is the moon over Tokyo.

The forum will never have a LIKE button. However, feel entirely free to describe in detail to the audience the reasons we should like a given photo.
