Telescope Moon Photo!

Moon (thumbmail)Last night we finally got a good Moon photo with our Meade 8″ telescope! It took several tries, and we’re still getting the hang of it, but the best of last night’s efforts is posted in a PHOTOS gallery for your viewing pleasure. As always, a desktop-size version of our feature photos is available for download. Since there’s almost no color information in a color shot of the moon, we converted it to grayscale and posted the original 2240×1488 image in a reasonable download size.You’ve seen better moon shots from NASA and the big-time earth-based observatories, but this is a credible first-time amateur effort. We think it’s pretty awesome!
