This is the clearest image of the moon so far (obviously from Earth's surface) created by Andrew Mccarthy (SWNS) using a telescope in his backyard. Maybe it's not so obvious, but this image is actually a stack of thousands of different shots - fused into one.
Here are few more detailed ones, pretty amazing isn't it?
Images above are taken from physics-astronomy page, the ones below are my own work.
This just motivated me to go and search through some of the moon images I gathered over time, and just to post it here - well, that was the idea, but I ended up creating this contest/challenge.
The idea is: Go out, or go through your archive and get the best photo fo the moon you have; post it in here (astronomy community) and comment the link to your post in the section comment below.
Rewards are not fixed, but all entries will be supported with a small vote, winner will receive all liquid rewards from this post, and if the payout of the post is low (will most likely be), I will probably add more HIVE into the reward pool.
Here are some ground rules:
It's all about the original photography and your story.
- In order to enter the competition, photos need to have metadata.
- don't be afraid to tell us your story how/when/why you shot it; what inspired you.
- Will not decide the winner but there will be a bonus points if you write up something about the moon:
Your favorite story, legend, scientific explanation, terminology (terminator, hypothesis, water on the moon?), songs about the moon either yours or some other musicians, links are welcome, etc... be creative.
And here is one song as an example :)
