Lunar Images

My first solo experiences with a telescope involved observing the moon. I had borrowed a cheap 60mm refractor on a rickety mount that was really unsuitable for anything else. I spent a whole summer exploring the surface of the moon with this little telescope and developed quite an admiration for our closest neighbour.

This is a collection of my lunar images. I have many different fields of view. Some are full disc images shot with a DSLR through either a 300 lens or telescope, as well as high resolution, close-up images shot with a planetary imaging camera through my telescope. For these latter, some have also been assembled into panoramas of either lunar regions or of the entire moon.

Of particular interest may be the “poster” I assembled of the different phases of the 2015 penumbral eclipse aka the Blood Moon, which is a collection of 24 images shot over the span of the eclipse event.
