    the moon is 400,000,000 metres away, lets say the flag is a metre hight, its angular size is 1 two-thousandth of an arcsecond (an arcsecond is a three-thousand-six-hundredth of a degree). The smallest detail hubble can photograph is 0.1 arcseconds!

    So with the average telescope, its not possible. (plus I think the flag was knocked over as they took off&#33

    Hey, guys, those images of the MoonŽs surface were simply great!!! I like them very much indeed! That one with annotations was very good - helps to identify the craters - got any more like that one?

    very nice image slotdrag
    I hope you don't mind but I've played with the image a little,
    I reversed the colours
    watch how the negative brings out some of the craters in the middle more visible

    The HST has a bit more resolution than that I believe, about 0.03 arcseconds in the near ultraviolet, but it is still incapable of such a feat.

    If only this site http://www.tass-survey.org/richmond/answer...nar_lander.html could lay the moon landing hoax conspiracy to rest.

    A pic of the Moon

    The densely cratered surface remains on the Moon after peroids of heavy bombardment that happened billions of years ago. If you look at the moon with your scope you'll find craters within impacts within other craters. Sometimes the craters are visible in chains or some have been partially destroyed by subsequent impacts.

    There are also many extensive gully like grooves on the Moon, the Rilles are thought to have come about from ancient flows. A Moon rille is sometimes meandering , some came from underground tubes carrying hot lava that later collapsed. Valleys can also be seen on the Moon, they are thought to be large troughs that developed after faulting which accompanied the adjusting of ancient Mares. These features can also appear on other Moons in our Solar System.

    There are some great pics here, thanks for sharing them.

    Here is my effort at lunar photography:




    It's a composite of 4 photos from top to bottom. I put them together, scanned them and cleaned them up with photoshop

    Smart-1 might be able to see the flag, well not the flag but maybe the Landers or the scorched marks on the Moon&#39;s surface I&#39;m not sure but I&#39;ve heard some others talk about ESA&#39;s smart-one ( ion-drive European craft ) and say it might be able to see the Apollo sites. SMART-1 will not land on the Moons soil, but will work from above at varying distance going from 200 km and 4,000 km because it has a wide curved orbit. The camera maybe has a res of 27 meters per pixel at an altitude of 300 KM, I&#39;ll have to check this up and confirm if its right or wrong but it might be able to spot Apollo.

    Indeed, that image is very good yet if you try more and try to improve a little each time then you&#39;re likely to get even better shots

    How did you take it, then? (I imagine you didn&#39;t use a webcam on the eyepiece, did you?)

    Your images on this thread are fantastic, Shahriar, as are yours, slotdrag

    I used my celestron 8" reflector and a meade electronic eyepeice, Taped it on my 13" tv/vcr combo. Then played it back on my 32" tv and used my digital camera to take the picture off the screen. I told you it was really weird.

    Here's an older pic

    you can see many crater impact features, the dark regions which contain some craterings are sometimes refered to as Maria or Mare.

    Hopes the mods fix the rest of the links soon, I love looking at other people's astrophotos.

    Here is one of mine:
