Wow! They are great julie
cool, well done!
going to have to try doing that soon as well.
is there anything i could do to get them sharper?
i guess it's hard to focus on something that is 238,855 miles away lol
can't see why...................!
They're brilliant photos!
oh where is the daddy? i want to show him my creations
You might be able to tweak the images you have with a decent graphics program.
As to actually improving the quality of the photos with the camera, you probably want to talk to SkyWatcher...
... any attempt i make at a moon photo will probably result in a pale smudge on a darker background
i think the strap was blowing in the wind so may have caused camera shake- could try again with that. Interestlingly i found the better one was done at 218 focal length for some reason - the others were 300.
I did have a little fiddle with the exposure as i shot in RAW and cropped and tried to sharpen a bit in photoshop but didn't get very far. Will need expert advice methinks.
ok, now you are talking camera geek at me
... i do computer geek stuff
woohoo i have out geeked you
well if you'd like any advice
Wow, awesome photos.
Your camera obviously has a bigger one than mine...
Nicely done - you are right the focus is a little soft and TBH this is the biggest pain of all - what setup were you using?
the first one was f 5.6 1/250 and 300 and the second was f11 1/250 and 213
iso 100 wb auto. How do you focus though?
Take pic - check focus - twist it a little - repeat time after time - do you have a lockable focus - I have a mark on mine in pencil at the right point of focus - but it took an age to find
Keith do i have a lockable focus?
yeah you do
hmmmm if they've been taken at 1/250 it shouldnt really be motion blur which makes me feel that your lens wasn't properly focussed at infinity.
Have a look on your lens and there should be an infinity marking, note that it won't be when the lens focus is rotated the whole way (as logic says it should be), it'll be twisted all the way then back a bit.
I suspect that's the softness in the image
exellent. Will work on it and read the instruction manual. Just as you learn one thing it's another lol
thank you both
