A pic of the moon I just took through my Celestron 8" SCT scope (2032mm focal length, 203mm aperture f/10 scope) With a Fuji s602z digicam set to 5.0 aperture and 1/150s shutter.
Only Neat Imaged it and ran it thru USM and levels in photoshop.

Not actually upside down, but certainly a mirror image of how the moon appears in the sky. This is common for catadioptric scopes like the one Ramon used.

This is true, it's not upside down but it is a mirror image. I thought about flipping it back to the way it actually looks in the sky but I liked the way it looked this way so I left it like that.

What I was trying to convey with this image is that you can have a deep DOF without another object in front of the moon. The moon being round has a far side and the closer side all of which are in focus and are VERY far apart! If 2 points in focus very far apart isn't deep DOF then what is? That is the very definition of DEEP DOF.

But I understand the need to find SOMETHING wrong with an entry in order to score it lower than the others so yours does better.

...hehe just kiddin about that last part ;-)

Beautiful shot of the moon, but the only focus here is at infinity (VERY shallow DOF). Wait for a plane to fly over the moon, and you've got a ribbon.

This is an EXCELLENT shot of the moon, however, there is no foreground to compare with the background. Both the foreground and the background need to be in focus for deep DOF.

Ahhh, you've discovered the secret to deep DOF: use a long telephoto and shoot something far away! I'd have been really impressed if you could have arranged to include a perfectly focused bird flying across...

Although overexposed on the edges, this image nicely shows both the interesting craters at the terminator and the beautiful ray systems of several prominent craters, especially Copernicus.

OK, are you kidding me? How the HELL did you do that? I am impressed good sir. You tell me or I will come to your house and take the moon back from out of your closet and put it back in the sky. That's just mean, people like to look at the moon- you shouldn't hoard it for yourself :D 10

wow. I could never get that clear a shot of the moon.

Well, you've basically taken the concept of deep DOF and slapped it in the face while insuling its mother. This photo is incredible! Needless to say, the detail and focus are out of this world (no pun intended). The composition is great and the intricate textures you've managed to pick up make it very interesting...... I give a 9

Nice shot but this does not show Deep DOF
06/08/2004 01:48:42 PM
This doesn't suggest deep depth of feild to me. If there was something in focus to the fore of the picture. (or even on earth :) However it is a nice close up shot of the moon
Good Luck

I think this is not a good demonstration of deep DOF, only of a far away focus point. Nice picture though.
06/07/2004 11:57:41 PM
It would be even more impressive you have held up a perfectly in focus beer can in front of the camera. :D You'd probably need an apprature of F2340922 to do that?
06/07/2004 09:39:39 PM
does this apply? Infinity?
06/07/2004 05:49:23 PM
Great image of the moon. but unless I count the crator shadows, there isn't much indication of a deep DOF here. The image is flat, and without something MUCH closer in the foreground, it stays that way.

I want to know what size telescope you need to get a photo that zoomed in?
