Fly me to the Moon

And let me play among the stars. (Bart Howard, 1954) The moon fascinates all of us and Avalus is no exception. He’s taken some wonderful moon shots and is sharing them with us.

With these it is hard to not simply say: Look what my toy can do!

Because I kinda just pointed my camera at the moon and, very unexpectedly, got beautiful shots. The advance of photo-technology is pretty amazing, as I remember trying the same thing about a decade ago with my dad’s professional camera and failing to get any more than a washed out disk of light. And nothing for daylight-moon. These were taken by hand or the camera rested on my balcony railing.

 Now I need go and play some more Kerbal Space Program.

To the Mün!

    Nice photos! They are detailed enough that they almost look like they were taken through a small telescope.

    Thanks, but the cam did all the work. :D
    Is is 25x opt zoom, in a compct cam. It is more than the binoculars I have. That feels very weird.
