Viewpoint

I know this is nothing new. The moon. We’ve all seen it. But for those who don’t own a telescope, you rarely get a chance to see it up close in person.

Imagine my surprise when I looked at it through a recently purchased 3oomm telephoto. With a crop factor of 1.6 for Canon, that makes the adjusted focal length 480mm! Not that I”m expecting to see the space station fly over or anything, but it shows how a different lens can open new ways of looking at a subject. 

I shoot a lot of wide angle views, but this new lens reminds me that the many perspectives of photography is what keeps it fresh, fun and exciting.

  1. Very nice Tim. I find it is hard to get a good crisp shot of the moon. I have a 4″ Schmidt Cassegrain and love to look at the moon. I just need to get a T-mount for it now.
