Moon – Selma, AL – 8/9/08

This past weekend, my brothers and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit some of our real good friends who live in Selma, Alabama. I took my telescope because I knew they lived in tghe country, and it would be dark. I was able to get some really good images. To keep with my Moon theme, here is a shot of the moon. More to come later!

The Moon – 8/6/08

Like the last post, here is the Moon from tonight, plus the difference in phase from the past three nights. I have some shots more up close, both from last night and tonight, and when I get around to processing them, I will post them.

The Phases of the Moon – 7/24/08-7/26/08, 7/28/08-7/29/08

Even though I missed the Moon on July 27, this little series of pictures showing the changing in the Moon’s phase came out better then I could have ever hoped. This will probably be the last one in this series due to the Moon  rising earlier in the morning – or later at night depending upon your perspective!

The Moon – 7/29/08

This will probably be the last pics of the Moon for awhile, unless I can get one more set tomorrow morning. Because of the “smaller” nature of the Moon, there are fewer pictures this time – simply, not much of the Moon to photograph! Also, pleas keep in mind, just as when the Moon is full and is hard to focus, the smaller the moon gets the harder it is to focus as well.

The Moon #2 – 7/28/08

More pictures of the Moon from this morning!

The Moon – 7/28/08

Here is my some pictures of the Moon from this morning. I apologize for having none from yesterday, but it was cloudy and I was not able to get any shots. I thought I was going to have the same problem this morning, but the clouds finally rolled away around 4:30am. Here is four of my first shots. I am going to give three sizes this time. The largest, which is 1200 x 800 is specifically done for computer desktop backgrounds. Which, btw – if you are using any of my pictures as backgrounds, etc, I’d love to hear from you and know which ones… just because I am curious!

Moon Phases #2 – 7/24/08 – 7/26/08

Here is the phases of the Moon again, except instead of three separate images, all three images are in one. There are three sizes below, from the original size, to smaller.

Moon Phases - 7/24/08 - 7/26/08: 3005x812
Moon Phases - 7/24/08 - 7/26/08: 1502x406
Moon Phases - 7/24/08 - 7/26/08: 844x228

Moon Phases – 7/24/08 – 7/26/08

Here is three pictures showing the changes in the phase of the Moon. Even though only three days have passed, it is pretty neat to see how much the phase changes in that short period of time! Also, note the amount of detail that shows up with each passing picture.
