11, 12, and 13 are the only ones I think are a little too dark.

Otherwise, I hope you saved copies at full-size...cause you should crop as tight around the moon as you want and then see how much resizing they need. For a good picture, people are often willing to download up to 300k.

Hello,



I hope that youu do not mind my English - I know that is really is not perfect.



I do like you moon photos - but they seems quite blue to me - what was your WB settings? It does not looks very natural. Otherwise they are very nice fotos.

Hello,



I can not tell you know what is the best settings. Maybe mode "cloudly" - youhave to try it.



But nothing is lost - you can change color scheme very easily in PS - I just changed colors in curves and made some croping. It took me about 1 minute.

I am not surre that it is better now - but it can show you how easy it is :-)

I am sorry if I bother you with something what do you know already.

Stanley

Below is a link to a couple of moon shots I've taken over the past couple of days. Last night was what is referred to as a blue moon, the second full moon in a given calander month. It doesn't happen that often. Settings for my shots where f8, 1/60 shutter, Daylight white balance at 12X optical. The first shot use pattern AF and the second spot AF. I have only cropped the images.

Fairly current thread on dpreview :

And here's result of a stacking dachshund's wee pictures (which at least removed the jpeg artifacts), doing levels adjust and sharpen. Still seems a long way away :O

Dachshund, not sure what it is don't understand. If any of Photoshop jargon is unfamiliar (blame Stanley, he started it :-)) young Andy Bright's site might help :
http://digiscopingukbirds.homestead....photoshop.html

"Stacking" is a technique of combining lots of images taken of the same subject. The individual frames may lack info or be noisy but a single picture which is "averaged" from them all can sometimes be much superior. An astrophotography stacking program called K3CCDTools has a "planetry wizard" which is so simple to use thought I'd give your moon pics a run through; the combined pic wasn't a dramatic improvement but at least it allowed a fairly radical sharpen without the jpeg "blockiness" becoming apparent. The result does not stand up to close examination; tele convertors, stacking and other post processing techniques are no match for the reach of a decent telescope :

Thought from comments above didn't want your moon to be blue. Perhaps technology has come full circle; you can have any colour you like as long as it's not black...
