The Moon

I did something I haven’t done in a while… took the telescope outside and had a look, this time viewing the Moon (there weren’t any other easy targets at that time).

I took this shot by taking the lens off my camera and holding it as still as I could to the telescope (the telescope acts as the lens). The photo could have been a bit sharper if I had the right equipment to screw my camera into the telescope and of course the view is much crisper, vivid and magnified viewing with your own eyes live through the telescope.

It’s fascinating for me to view the Moon and think that humans have actually managed to travel and land on that gigantic rock.


The Zoo

Saturday visit to Taronga Zoo, one could easily spend a whole day there just watching the animals!
