First Lunar Images using TMB

God is really good. 🙂

After one year, I was able to use again my TMB Triplet Apo Refractor mounted on CG5-GT. Last night was my first time to use it for astrophotography.

My boyfriend and I marveled with its sharp and crisp views of the waxing gibbous moon and Mars.  We were in awe.

It took me one year because I forgot to include a diagonal which was needed for refractors to bring celestial views to focus, haha!

To the stars!

  1. congrats to the equipment upgrade. you seem to have matured in your taste and standard in your astrophotography skills & armamentarium.

  2. astig talaga pics mo idol! kelan pa kaya ako matututo ng astrophotography..hehe

  3. Naku Norman mabilis mo lang iyan matutunan. 😀

    May nakita akong scopes sa astrophils.ning sa department niyo ah. Pwede ka kuha ng moon pics gamit lang cellphone or digicam. 🙂

    First astro pictures ko ay kuha gamit ang lumang model ng camcorder, hahaha!

  4. haha.. sinubukan ko pero di ko alam paano..hehe..
    new challenge ito! 🙂 lol

    • Tapat mo lang lens ng digicam sa eyepiece then isipin mong may sariling mata ang digicam at kailangan din i-focus. Dapat steady hands hangga’t maaari then pag nasa field of view na ng camera ang moon, sabay focus. 😀
