Wide cresent moon by idiotsavant Wide cresent moon by idiotsavant
This style of phototography is called astrophotography.
This was done using an Olympus OM1 and a Televue TV101, 4 inch refractor. This was shot at a focal length of 2250 afocally using a 12 Nagler type 4 eyepiece through a 50mm lens. The film used was Kodak E100 VS.

Let me know what you think, commments and critic's are welcome.

Thanks for keeping film astrophotography alive.
What is your method for focus? I'm new at this, and I'm just getting my feet wet. I can never seem to get a sharp focus, even with a Hartman (sp) mask. Nice refractor, btw.

Fine shot. Eh, is it "cresent"? I thought it was "crescent". Whatever.

I usually don't look at photography stuff on DA because there is SO much of it (seems like everyone and their cat has a digital camera these days!), but this one caught my eye right away.

I love the moon--I paint a lot of night scenes and the crescent moon is my favorite. Of course, I live in SC where our state flag is a crescent moon and a palmetto tree, so I'm a little biased there ;) Still, excellent shot--I can only imagine how tricky it must be to take pictures of the moon or the stars, and you definitely bring some more credibility to the photography scene on DA.
