Full Moon

Once I saw that my EOS 300D could easily be mounted on my father's telescope, I immediately had to get one of those T2 adaptors... This image of the full is among the first pictures I took with this equipment.

When shooting the moon at 2000mm focal length with a crop factor of 1.6 it gets too large for fitting on one single frame. This image, hence, is a mosaic stitched out of 3 exposures. I had to active the mirror lockup function since the vibration caused by the flipping mirror is quite visible at this focal length.

Browse the images on this site by clicking on one or more tags. When clicked, a tag becomes active (or inactive). Active tags will restrict the thumbnails on the bottom of this popup to images that have all of the currently active tags assigned. A tag that is assigned to the image currently visible is shown with a  blue background . Tags will be grayed out if none of the currently selected images have that tag assigned. Tags with a serif font designate an image gallery, i.e. images that are related to each other because they were e.g. taken during the same trip.
