Just offering advice

Avoid where possible full or near full Moon shots, the lighting is flat, concentrate more on the terminator and partial Moon images, the attached was a VERY simple setp just a 3" refractor, 6MP DSLR

Don't try too hard either, keep it simple where the Moon is involved, focus is critical though

This is a good item to have also

Hi John

More than good enough, nicely done.

I just punched a copy through Photoshop and used some Nik and Topaz Plug Ins to tease out some of the data.

I had to crop down to 1024 and save at a lossy JPG to get under the 200K file size limit, but here goes.

Cheers

Dennis

You mean "make it"................

I printed on to 300gsm card, laminated, cut round/out, and used a 1/2" bolt in the middle

I was going to modify it but the forum rules forbid doing anything without permission

Yes, my wife is going to print me a few copies today at work as our printer is no longer printing.
