I finally had a decent night on the 7th to take some snapshots. I fooled around with a couple shots this time last month, but I spent more time learning how to shoot Jupiter than the Moon. So, this in a way is my first attempt to shoot good pics. I didn't label any data on these pics yet, and wanted to post them to see what you all think. The first is simply a shot with my inexpensive Kodak 6.1mp camera through a 24.5mm Meade SWA. I have a 16" f/4.5. The other shots are at 640X480, zoomed, taken as avi. with Craterlet, and processed in Registax and The zoomed look somewhat blurry (no guide capable), and am trying to ponder my way to a better pic...

Hey Guy,

The first pic you posted....the full shot of the moon, see the blue around the edge of the moon? Sure looks like an atmosphere!
Or was that taken during the day and cropped?
