|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Taken about 5 minutes before posting to TN, a partial eclipse of the Moon taken from Sydney Australia at approximately 10.21pm. The full effect of the eclipse was at 10.03pm. This is the last eclipse for 2005.|
This is an example of using a simple digital SLR to capture the night sky without a telescope. The original image had been enlarged in a computer and then cropped to meet the TN image size. Please take note, for pictures of the moon you need to use a fast shutter speed.

Good work. Nicely captured. Thanks for the note on the shutter speed. All my photos of the moon so far are just white blobs! Well done. Thanks.

Thanks JP, I've tried to catch the moon, but my camera won't even recognize that it is in the sky!! (350D) I guess I haven't got it set correctly. One day I will go out and try harder.
I could tell that this was a shot taken in the southern hemisphere, the moon looks differently up north - the man is upside down up there!
A faster shutter spped - so you set it and shoot on the shutter speed? I'll try and remember.
This is a good shot, well done,
