Hi Guys,

This is my first Moon mosaic as I venture into Astrophotography:

Image

Taken with my D200 @ prime focus on my Skywatcher 250P DS with a 2x barlow giving an effective focal length of 2400mm. ISO400 1/200th sec.

10 Frames stitched together in CS4.

Not perfectly sharp due to mirror slap. When at prime focus I cant seem to activate MLU so Im not sure how to improve the sharpness.

Comments / thoughts / critique always welcome.

Hi Digz,

I'm not astro photographer so I'll refrain from giving any advice here, but that is a great picture of the moon I must say.

I'd venture a guess that cybermystic can give you some hints though!

Looking very much forward to seeing more if you are so inclined...

Cheers :-)

Hi lahlahsr, many thanks for the response :D

Im hoping cybermistic will part some of his wisdom to me so I can improve.

Im indeed going to post more as and when I take them, just waiting for the skies to clear - typical :roll:
