About This is the last one. I was just happy that I worked it out to get a decent shot through my eyepiece, that I wanted to share.
The red line points to Mount Pico.
Dimensions: 25 x 15 km/15 x 9 miles
Height: 2400m/7300ft
Age: approx. 3 billion years old
I thought adding a little information might make these pictures more interesting.
Thanks for looking.

Hi J Esford. Thank you for the compliment. Although, I didn't do anything unusual to get these, other than being stubborn and persistent. Hand holding my digital camera to the eye piece was frustrating as unless the light path was lined up exactly, the pictures were no good. What you see here are a few that turned out well. You should see the number that didn't. There were lots of them.

Wow Mary Brown! I am impressed, indeed. "You've come a long way baby..." ~smile~
In the 70's-80's I used a 4" Tasco reflector which I modified with a 2" eyepiece to mount my Minolta SRT 100 SLR. Without any of the wonderful motor drives available today, I limited myself to "short" exposures of not so distant celestial objects. You have gotten better shots in a year than I managed to get in a decade. Beautiful pieces Mary. Congratulations.

Rejendra, I'm glad you like my moon picture. For some, I hand held my camera to the eyepiece. It is a little tricky adn a lot of shots did not turn out. I suggest using a low power EP and the optical zoom on your camera. Then you can try a barlow. I also have an adapter to attach a camera to a telesope. It is made by Orion called a SteadyPix SLR camera adapter. It works, but can be fiddly. Some companies make camera adapters specific to many different models. They are a little more expensive. However, one gentleman in our Astronomy group has one for his and it works really well. One company that makes them is ScopeTronix. I know there are others also but I can't remember who they are. An interent search wil bring them up.
I am not very knowledgeable about cameras as I really just started taking pictures in January with my new digital camera.
What kind of scope do you have?
As I said, I don't know so much, but I would certainly be glad to help what I can. My email address is
4mpb@netscape.ca If you email me, put someting like 'question from UF' as a subject so I recognize it as not junk mail.

Mary,
What i like: The details. It’s so clear as if you are viewing it through telescope right now.

I do have a telescope. But i don't have knowledge of attaching camera (Kodak DX 6490) to telescope.
I really wish to take photographs like this.

I hope you would guide me further. I was reading the other comments, you answered many questions, briefly though.

Thanks for youe lovely comments on my picture.

Best regards,
Rajendra

Mary,

I have send this one as a postcard to my brother.
He is also a amateur astronomer and is the president of the Belgium dark sky association. They fight against the increasing light pollution that disturbs there view on the universe.

And off course nice capture!

Mary Brown   {K:71879} 3/27/2005
Thank you, Martin. (I took it as a compliment.) I have an 8 inch SkyWatcher reflector on a Dobsonian mount. The magnification is determined by the eyepiece used. For my pictures, I was at 48x.
I can think of a few reasons why you did not get good resolution in your picture. If you are interested in further discussing this, why don't you send me an email at
4mpb at netscape.ca
It would be better than in this forum as it does tend to be a bit offthe regular topic of UF. However, I always love to talk about things astronomical.

Another fabulous capture Mary, I used to have a 10" Newtonian (Meade DS10) which I left in Cyprus. I often used to hold my old digital camera up to the eyepiece (easy on 25mm but impossible on 9mm or less lol). But my piccies never came out as lovely and clear as yours ... and I know how difficult this is :-)

Excellent work :-)

Best wishes,
Steve

Great Shot, Mary. By a funny coincidence I was trying to take shots of the moon last night but all I got was a little round white thing. Obviously a 300mm lens is just not enough, although it did look better in the viewfinder. Probably pilot error, AGAIN! Thanks for your comment on my Cactus Flower pic. Cheers, Ann.

So very very cool! Here I was thinking I was the only person nerdy enough (that's a compliment) to take photos through their telescope!

Absolutely cool Mary and thank you for sharing the info on each!

Here is one of my pictures from 2000 through my telescope.

Question for you if I may, what telescope do you have? Make-Model-power? Refractor or reflector or?

Thanks again!

Thank you, Den, for this wonderful compliment. I am glad you enjoyed my Moon shots. However, I'd venture to say that it took more stubborness than photographic skill to get my camera aligned with the eyepiece and held steady.

Hi mary, thanks so much for your comment on my moon shot. I appreciate it so much. Margaret (who is my partner) had pointed out this series of pics from you but due to a computer prob and shortage of time I haven't been able to comment till now.
I find these shots absolutely INCREDIBLE!! The detail that you've retained is unbelievable and you certainly know quite a bit about the subject. I am also intrigued about the technique that you used. i have heard of Digiscoping for wildlife photography but never seen any results. Whatever you do it achieves fabulous results. I raise my hat to you for photographic skill and ingenuity.

Jimmy, thanks for looking at my pictures. See my note to Shane re the telescope I have. You can get a filter to lessen the glare of the Moon.
If you like, send me an email at

Thanks, Shane. I tried out my Orion SteadyPix to attach my camera to a 25mm eyepiece. The Steadypix holds the camera steady; similar to a tripod's purpose. I have a Skywatcher Dobsonian, 8 inch. This combination provides 48x magnification.

Jimmy Payne   {K:21163} 3/24/2005
Wow, Mary, these are wonderful shots of the moon taken through your telescope. I am curious as to how you're doing this. What size scope do you have? Is it the type that takes different eyepieces? I have a 40mm eyepiece for my cheap Meade that makes the moon so bright that is hard to look at for very long. Your tibits of information on the moonscapes do make the shots more interesting.

Best wishes, Jimmy

Thanks for commenting, James. I suppose a couple more objects would have been fine to point out. The thing is, once I got started, I may not know enough to stop. I am a bit of a 'lunatic'.

Hi Mary,

Your getting some really nice shots! I think the extra info is a wonderful idea. You may even want to add what your setup is. Such as, Hand held eye projection using a "XYZ" eyepiece and a 10" Skywatcher Dobsonian. Effective magnification "XYZ".

Keep up the good work! Your inspiring me to take some more astro shots ;o)

Mary,

You have lost a bit of detail in the southern highlands. You may want to try modifying the levels in the image or the brightness/contrast, to bring out the detail in the south.

Thanks.

Another stunning shot Mary. The Moon is such an almost magical thing we start to sometimes take for granted but that we probebly would not even be here if not for.
I think I would move it in your frame a little to the right as our mind compensates for the dark half and completes it in our vision, so I would give it that space.

Randy
