moon - take 3.

I have been one very very lucky girl. I asked on FB for any help to locate and borrow a 600mm telescopic lens to shoot the moon with. I need to emulate a photo that has really Inspried me for my homework and I found this one which used that lens. www found here (I'm not sure if you need to be a forum member to view this). Wonderful educational site to learn your camera BTW.

Mr B, via Mrs B on FB, very very kindly offered me the use of his telescope with a 703mm lens attached. That was at about 9pm last night. About 10.15pm last night and approx 60km later, I was framing up the moon thru his telescope and caught this.

Not quite the same, that would be just too boring. (after having a good look at it, I think his moon is upside down to mine, otherwise it does look fairly similar)

What an awesome experience. I learnt HEAPS, asked a lot of questions, and gazed at the moon in awe.

To the Mr and Mrs B, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I am very grateful to you.
