Here's a few I took of the "Moon" a couple mornings ago when I let the dogs out for their morning outing......the first is what it looked like with no "zoom", the second is 12x, and the third is at 48x........my camera is 12 power optical and 4x digital for 48x......
Canon Powershot S2 IS....5 meg.px....I had it "propped" against the wall, but was still a little shaky...have to try it next time with the "tri pod"...and, they haven't been "photo edited"........

Here's a few more of the "Moon" that I've taken over the last several years......some may be "dups", but notice on the first photo where something that made the "crater" near the bottom has "spewed" over and left its mark on the lower quarter area of the moon, like a volcano has erupted and ran down leaving its mark...don't remember ever hearing about this and that the moon took such a hard hit....and, some of them have been edited to bring out these details.......

Those are some great pics. This is something I have been interested in doing for a long time. I'm a gadget nut anyway and would be interested in finding out what set-up you use, telescope and type, camera, etc. Post some pics of your set-up? Great shots, keep up the great work. I really enjoy your post and appreciate your time and effort.

Thanks for your nice response ....... I don't have a telescope, just my camera which can zoom to 48 power as I noted above.....it is pretty old now, but can
still be purchased at a greatly reduced price from what I paid originally for mine.....here's a couple links which tells the features and what others have had to say about it..........of course, there are many later versions you will want to consider.........and, a standard tri-pod for holding it more steadily....should you not be aware, you take the optical power and multiply it by the digital power to get the overall power of your camera....as mine, 12x optical times the 4x digital equals the 48x I noted above...let me know if I can help further.........

Here's an ebay link which shows a great price (paid $650 for mine) and gives the specs. on the camera...I've "copied and pasted" them in the "quote" below.....

Those are still great pics. You must live away from too much light pollution to get pics like that. Thanks for the info. Pics like that are much easier than I thought they would be.
