Photos of the Moon - 2016

Moon Photos with Sky-Watcher Heritage 100P | Moon Photos with GSO GSD 680 | Moon Photos with Sky-Watcher Heritage P130

On this page, I present photos of the moon that I took on April 10 and 14, 2016. I used the 32 mm DigiScope eypiece that I attached fix to the lens of the Leica X Vario camera (projection method). I used both the Sky-Watcher Heritage 100P and Heritage P130 telescopes and my new GSO GSD 680 8" Dobson telescope. I also used a 16 mm eyepiece at the GSO, but in this case, I had to use the 1:50 method with the Leica X Vario, resulting in more magnified but less sharp photos. I did the same with the Heritage P130, but used a Leica M (Typ 240) camera.

 

Moon Photos with Sky-Watcher Heritage 100P

For the following moon photo attempts from April 10, 2016, I mounted the Leica X Vario permanently on the 32 mm eyepiece. The telescope magnification was only 12.5 x and the camera lens was, I as far as I remember, set to 70 mm (46 mm real).

Note: For the 2015 moon photos with this telescope I used a stronger magnifying eyepiece (I do not remember which one...) and therefore had to apply the 1:50 method.

For the following moon photo attempts from April 10, 2016, I mounted the Leica X Vario fix to the 32 mm DigiScope eyepiece. The telescopic magnification was only 37.5 x, the camera lens was set to a focal length of 70 mm (46 mm actual) set (I think...).

Photos with 16 mm Eyepiece (1:50 Method)

For the following moon photo attempts from April 10, 2016, I held the Leica X Vario to the 16 mm eyepiece (1:50 method). The telescopic magnification was 75 x, the camera lens was set to a focal length of 70 mm (46 mm actual) set (I think...).
