Moon Mosiac 3
by Doug Scobel

Hi, everyone, here’s an image of the nearly first quarter moon I took last night (Thursday, June 21, 2007). It’s a mosaic of five separate images taken through my homemade eight-inch f/8 Newtonian reflector, AKA “The Mars Scope.” I used my Nikon Coolpix 800 point-and-shoot digital camera mated to a 14mm Tele Vue Radian eyepiece. I let the camera auto-focus and auto-expose. I used Panorama Maker version 3.1 to create the mosaic and Paint Shop Pro version 8.0 for the digital processing. North is at the top.

If your picture viewer shrinks the image to fit the window, then expand it to its full size to see all the detail.
