We like tha moon!

Important advice on lunar observing

The closest and most obvious thing in the sky. Where most telescope owners start, and where quite a few finish - it can be a challenging target to photograph, and is always changing in its appearance. As per the blurb on planetary imaging, the humble webcam rules yet again. I've compared these images to earlier images captured afocally with a digital camera, and despite their smaller image size, when it comes to quality they ROCK! Anyway feast and enjoy,,,
