Photos of the Moon - April 2017

Moon Photos with Sky-Watcher Explorer 150PDS Tube | Moon Photos with Sky-Watcher Skymax-102 OTA

On this page, I present photos of the moon that I took on April 1, 2, and 3 (and the beginning of April 4), 2017. I used my 32 mm DigiScope, a 16 mm UWA, and 7 mm UWA eyepiece. I had to use the 1:50 method with the Ricoh GR camera.

First Photos of the Moon with the Camera Held to the Eyepiece

The following photos of the moon were taken at the beginning of April 2017 (April 1, 2, and 3; on April 3, it was half moon). They were taken using the 1:50 method, that is, with the camera held to the eyepiece. In this case, I used my Ricoh GR (28 mm equivalent) at ISO 1600 and underexposed to avoid flare.

I used a 16 mm and a 7 mm UWA eyepiece. With the latter, I was able to see the full moon, but not to "catch" it.

First Photos of the Moon with the Camera Held to the Eyepiece

The following photos of the moon were taken at the beginning of April 2017 (April 2 and 4 just after its beginning; on April 3, it was half moon). They were taken using the 1:50 method, that is, with the camera held to the eyepiece. In this case, I used my Ricoh GR (28 mm equivalent) at ISO 1600 and underexposed to avoid flare.

I used a 16 mm UWA and a 32 mm Plössl eyepiece. With the former, I was able to see the full moon, but not to "catch" it.

Regrettably, the photos are not as sharp as the ones that I took using the Sky-Watcher Explorer 150PDS at the same time.
