It's not really a full moon, as I captured this on May 2nd, 2015 and the next full moon is on May 4th, 2015.

 

I put it in the attachments because it was so big just putting the image link here.

 

Captured with a Canon PowerShot SD1000 and processed it a bit in photoshop.

 

I used a StarNavigator 90mm Altazimuth Refractor with AutoStar and used the 9mm MA eyepiece.

Hi Chase,

Looks pretty good, I think!

Thank you MistrBadgr! I have made another photo of the moon last night but I forgot to focus the telescope so it's a bit blurry.

 

Here is a desktop wallpaper (1920x1080) of the new moon photo.

And here is the download link for the photo: http://www.mediafire...pn6/moonnew.png

 

The link has a preview and a download button.

 

I have ordered a filter so I can look at the moon without burning my eye, and an eyepiece so I can see Jupiter and Saturn and all those other planets clearly. I will post pictures of Saturn and Jupiter with it's moons when I get the eyepiece.

Good pictures Chase, long ago I tried to take some pictures of the moon my self and I know it isn't as easy as it looks.

 

Regards,

Yeah, the moon is hard to photograph since when I put the camera up to the eyepiece it doesn't get the full image.
