I find these lunar "close-ups" and the details they show really interesting Mike. Great idea showing images of your setup too!
C & C always welcome

These really are fascinating Mike, I had no idea about scale so looked up the diameter of copernicus and found it to be 93km, that makes the whole image (very) roughly 900km by 600km, interesting stuff!

Thanks Simon and Fred!!


Last night, in very mediocre conditions, made worse by the moon being directly over the roof of my neighbor (big no-no) I tried out the C8 for practice in my driveway. End result not bad, though I likely would have been better off using my lenses. lol Was still fun, and the more practice I get the more prepared I will be for a good high moon. This was only at 25 degrees.

Shared image about 1/2 scale of full size. Click to see it. Also included a screen cap of my pre-processing of the stack with a look at 100% of what my stack looked like before any processing - and a thumbnail of the whole sensor view captured. And my driveway setup. lol. Really not advised for decent seeing.



A closer look around Sinus Iridum







Thanks for looking!

Clear Skies

Mike

This is a far cry from WestCoastCannuck's setup - mine is A580 with Minolta 100-200mm handheld - but I'm pretty proud of these pictures nonetheless. This was my third time shooting (for) the moon and I'm pretty satisfied considering that I only took these on a whim without even setting up a tripod. That lens is a keeper!

@Cucoo

Both of them are very nice - though I prefer the one with the clouds for the added interest in a large frame. And they are both rather better suited to this thread than my last post, since this is a Sony forum.

A good copy of the 100-200 is a nice pocket gem of a lens - even on full frame.

Cheers

Mike

Thanks - and yeah, me too - I was lucky to get a shot like that before thicker clouds came in blocking out the moon altogether.

Tonight's moon

A99ii + 70-400G + 2xTC (Soligor)

Did a little experiment with 2xTC (800mm), 1,4xTC (560mm) and combo of both (1120mm).
Cropped them to match the 1120mm shot.
The 2xTC came out best. Too few samples to call it scientific though.

Looks good Fred! Nice contrast and colour.

Here is my effort in 90% humidity. (bleh)

My very first attempt: Sony NEX-7 with 16-50mm PZ @ 16mm, f/11, 30 sec. ISO 3200. Taken without tripod, the camera was put on a table and the screen tilted(!) to put the camera in the right position.
The picture was made during a mountain hike in Italia in front of the Rifugio Falere in Aosta, during a crispy night.

Quit a lot of ALPHA gear, a nice collection of Sigma lenses, Dynax and M42 stuff, NEX i.c.w. Sigma's, Gitzo's, Visico's and lots of video-equipment
