There's no substitute for good quality long glass. Nice shot.

The Moon and Mars Together

Last night, the moon appeared to pass very closely to the planet Mars, which is the dim reddish dot about one lunar diameter above the moon. In reality, Mars is about 150 times as far from us as the moon, so there was no danger of a collision. If I had been in certain parts of the southern hemisphere at the time I took this picture, I would been treated to the moon passing in front of Mars and obscuring the planet completely. Alas, it was not to be from my corner of New England.

Picture taken with Pentax K-5 and HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm f1:4-5.8 ED WR telephoto zoom at 300mm, edited in Adobe Photoshop for cropping and minor adjustments.

That's nice ecostigny! And at least your Mars was closer to your moon than mine! This is from my back yard in WA, USA.

Shot with BORG 55FL (small 250mm f/4.5 telescope) and Pentax Q7, ISO 200, 1/80 sec. Turbulence was bad, I took a bunch of pictures (turned out I shot 78) and manually selected the one where Mars looks reasonably round.

This one is from earlier this week where the low moon was really red behind thick haze and thin cloud. Haze was probably due to fire 60-70 miles away. Pentax Q7, BORG 55FL and Pentax 1.7x.


Both are cross posted to Let's share shots with Q! - PentaxForums.com thread.
