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...

Excellent photo of Chandamama. I am doing a post on Chandrayaan-I and surely this post deserves a link.

hi really cool moon pic !! i own the same dsc h50 ..and want to try the same ..can you tell me what setting i should use / mode etc

@ Anon,
Use VGA Mode, exposure Auto. Use tripod for stability. Rest of the setting you can try and experiment. If you're having problem I can be more specific.

Sky has to be clear, free from pollution, clouds etc...
