    Nice work. I particularly like the Saturn shot.

    {See pic in post above}

    While probably a foolish question to most, in the pic of what is obviously a spherical celestial body that a novice such as myself would consider as being basically void without form, except but for the crators- {NICE PIC BY THE WAY}

    My question is, since it is accepted that these crators were the result of meteroids colliding into the surface, is there an explaination as to why there are not more glancing impacts which would lead to oblong crator impacts?

    I believe the large explosion resulting from vapourising material results in a round crater even if impactors strike at a low angle. Now I want to simulate this with a tray of flour, but the low angle of impact thing might be hard to do.

    I never tire of close-up images of the moon. Nice.

    I've seen it done on T.V. (with flour), and yes, angle of impact didn't seem to have much, um, impact on the shape of the crater.
    Measure once, cut twice. Practice makes perfect.

    A NASA do-it-yourself video on how to do this. They tough on the low angle of impact effects (the crater is still circular, but the ray pattern changes).

    Great pictures, I never seem to tire of taking moon shots

    What equipment do you use ? and also camera settings.

    Regards
