I tried again using the Loony11 settings (f/11 1/250 ISO200) with my a700 and the Sigma 400mm APO MACRO on a tripod with anti-shake off. Turned out f/11 at 1/350 was better and here is the cropped result.

The longer the focal length, the faster your shutter speed will need to be because the moon will be moving more quickly across the image. There's also a hit-and-miss factor when shooting the moon because atmospheric disturbances between here and the moon can bend the light enough to de-focus it.

@ Miranda F (Anthony)

You have used the URL for the page the shot is on. You need to right click on the shot itself and select "Copy Image Location" to get the correct URL for posting here.

Here's an example using one of my own shots...

First bring up the Dyxum posting box. Then in another tab....

1) Log into your Photostream.

2) Select the shot you want to post with a left click. When the cursor runs over the selected pic it changes to a magnifier-shaped cursor.

3) Right click on the photo and a dialog box shows...



4) Select the size of shot you want (1024 pixels or slightly bigger) with a left click and the following appears



Note that the correct size is in black.

5) Right click on the pic and this time a new dialog box appears which offers a number of options -- left click on Copy Image Location

6) Now go back to the tab with the Dyxum page and place the cursor on a blank line with no text below it.

7) Left click on the insert photo symbol labelled as "1"



And a dialog box drops down into which you paste the pic's URL (Cntrl+v) and press OK

The URL should look like

[IMG]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8298/7929824182_cf88e552d2_o.jpg[/IMG]

and you will see the shot as



Hope this gets you under way.

In your case I have now tracked down your shot and pasted in the correct URL, which you can see by using Post Options/Edit.

Thanks for the correction, Brettania, and apologies that it was necessary. I figured I'd got something wrong but wasn't sure what.
I'll go stand in the corner with my D cap on, and try to do better next time

Some shots i did last night. I don't have the right equipment at all. I use an Alt Az GOTO mount and an Achromat refracting scope.

But i am pleased with the results for my first attempt.

1. M31 Andromeda Galaxy 10x3sec exposures.


2. M82 (left) and M81 (right) the yellowish dot in M82 is a supernova which only became visible to us recently.


3. M42 Orion Nebula. Got a bit of star trailing due to the exposures being a bit too long for the mount but still happy with it.



Thanks for looking.

THAT is impressive. Really great for a first attempt.

I was impressed that I had the Andromeda Galaxy visible in a photo I took recently. This takes the cake entirely away. You show some of the most serious dedication to doing high-magnification astrophotography. I applaud you.
