Moon Shoots


I bought the Canon Powershot SX730 a few weeks ago & decided to try out the zoom. Now I have taken photos of the moon before with my old SX240 but they did not come out like these

 The moon was out in the evening sky when I took these photos

 You can clearly see the craters on this view

 And more lower down

Don't think I ever noticed my photos this of the moon this clear before

This is a stitch of the last two

A week or so later I took the full moon in the night sky
Happy Skywatch

  2. These are awesome! The detail is amazing. I have a 100mm - 400mm tele zoom and I can't get this detail (without a lot of cropping, and then things get fuzzy).

    1. I found the same with my 50 - 500 I use, the compact sort of takes the micky

  8. Hi Bill, These are excellent moon shots. They are just not going to get much better than these! Congrats! Coincidentally I also purchased the Canon SX730 about a month ago and took it on a trip up to Alaska. Will be putting some of my pictures on the blog in the near future. I love the camera. I would compare the results with what I've gotten digiscoping in the last couple of years ... that would be attaching a camera to a spotting scope. The 40X zoom is really like looking through binoculars as far as the image is concerned. I have found that using a tripod at high zoom is very helpful. I also like the color the images provide ... very realistic! I will be looking forward to more of your posts here on Spuds Daily Photo. Have a great weekend! John
