Moon Pics

October 27, 2001

Just thought I would "moon" y'all ... well, that is, with some Moon Photos I took.

These were taken Saturday evening, October 27, 2001, around 7:00 pm. I was trying out my new 8-inch Dob. The view through my new telescope is "out of this world!" (Think about it ... it really is!)

I used my Canon FTb with a 50mm lens and Polaroid 400 speed film. Eyepieces were a 25 mm (48x) and a 15mm (82x). Also I did a shot with my moon filter, which made a pretty "green moon." The camera settings I used were focus at infinity with a 1/8 second shutter speed.

I hope you like my pics. I think they are pretty good. There are prints that were made at York Photo, and they are not as good as the originals, since they look a tad washed out. But they are not bad, with it being the first time trying out photos with the new scope.
