First Picture of the Moon

. picture of the Moon

On the 26th August 2009 I took my first picture of our Moon using a digital camera pointing down the eye piece of the telescope. The moon was high in the sky in perfect conditions and 39.7% of it’s surface was lit by the Sun. This made for a perfect shot of the moon’s craters. For this shot I used a 24mm zoom lense without any filters.
