Karachi Moon

This is Yesterday’s Karachi Moon. I wanted to capture it with all its denting painting but it turns out to be all bright white. Any expert suggestions that I might use next time?

PS: Enlarge the pic its quite big. Optical zoom of binocular 20 by 50. Digi of 5 mega pixels.

    Try using a thin black cloth stretched over the lens. A black dupatta would be perfect.

    Its an old photographic trick. Said to improve contrast and bring out the details.

    if you used a very slow shutter, try increasing its speed and open the aperture to maximum.

    in that way your camera will not catch Unnesessary

    Better to get a cheap moon filter eyepiece :) Available from your local astronomy buffs (yes there are lots and lots in Karachi!) I have one too.

    By the way, one of my friends has rigged up his digital camera with the eyepiece of his telescope, and the digital camera is connected to his large screen TV via TV output. It looks awesome!

    hmmmmmmm….. that would be my dear brother Khurram’s talking about….
    Khurram is right there are some good shops in Karachi for photographic filters…..U can start by trying at Regal where there are camera shops. Some deal in lenses and filters.
    As for the setup of my telescope, I’ll ask my brother to take a picture of the whole thing and post it soon……its crude, but works awesome!!
    he’s a freak about astronomy and the setup helps him put up beautiful shows of moon and planet sightings right at our roof-top for all the friends and family.
    And the best part is we dont have to go thru the pain of sticking our eyes in the telescope one by one……
