Challenge: Black and White in Color II (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Location: Santa Ana
Date: Feb 26, 2008
Aperture: 13.9
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/8
Galleries: Astrophotography
Date Uploaded: Feb 26, 2008

Shot with Meade 90mm ETX Telescope (borrowed from a friend) attached to my Canon 40D. This was my first night sooting with the scoop. More difficult then I expected. It's very difficult to keep the whole setup perfectly still. The effective focal length is 1250mm with an effective aperture of 13.9. Shot in color as required, raw conversion, desaturated yellow in Aperture to remove chromatic artifact around the rim of the moon, crop, then USM.

I don't find the composition very interesting, but I'm pleased with this first attempt a shooting with a telescope.

Nice bit shot, but it's too out of focus for me.
