Thin Crescent Moon Shots With A Nikon D3000
Thin crescent moon, camera hooked to the back of an Orion 80mm refractor telescope as a prime-focus f/7.5 lens. Shutter speed was 1/30 second and ISO set to 100. Cropped and rotated, but no other mods. The clouds which plagued the night sky cleared enough to get these pics. And yes, I froze my cajones off in the 30+ degree air.
1/50 second. I took over a hundred shots this morning, and these were the best two. Focusing is the hardest thing for me. I think my eyes are shot.
