NEW!  Moon Pics by club associate Jan 2003


I have enclosed two lunar images I took last night at 7.20pm with a Polaroid fun flash 640 digital camera. I used a digital camera adaptor attached to a 7mm nagler eyepiece to give a magnification of 171x through my 10" f/4.8 reflector on a dobsonian mount.

I was very surprised with the end result. It's amazing what can be done with low cost digital cameras today.

Best regards,
