Moon- Close up-who needs a telescope?

An up close photo of the moon
Clicked above photo of moon recently at Binsar. [Binsar trip details]

Camera: Sony DSC H50: 15x optical zoom + 81x digital zoom was used to get this close. Used Prashant's tripod for steadiness.

(12th October 2008) It was 2 days to full moon day, so it is just short of a full circle...

A higher altitude (2400 meters) and a clear sky free from pollution, clouds or rain made this easy.

The only disadvantage is that this is an extremely low resolution image shot in VGA mode...
