The total Moon eclipse on June 15 2011 - do not miss!!!

posted on 8th of june, 2011

I would like to put your attention, colleagues, to very interesting astronomical up-coming event: the total moon eclipse that will take place in a week, on June 15 2011. The Sun, Earth, and Moon will be aligned exactly with the Earth in the middle, so the Earth's shadow will fall onto the Moon.

I saw such events several times in my life and should tell you: it looks great. The full moon gradually becoms red like ruby. I am going to take some photos using my 5'' scope. Perhaps someone of you will like to take shoots, as well.

North America will be out of game this time, but those who are located in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia have chances to watch the eclipse (if there will be no clouds at their locations, of course).

Excellent results! Congrats! Could you be so kind to share - how did you do it? Shutter speed, lens, etc... Perhaps, some special technique? Thanks in advance.

BTW, have you seen that? - http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap110617.html

Moonrise, noise and NOISE NINJA...

posted on 22nd of june, 2011

More than 1 year ago, in April 2010 I took a series of rising moon images just out of my window (near the center of Moscow) with 200mm lens. Then I got an idea to stack them to show the moonrise process.

I liked the result but it contained too much noise. Firstly I tried to suppress it with the NEAT IMAGE software but there were too much artefacts after filtering and my image was rejected with the reason "overfiltered". In some months I undertook a second attempt using NOISEWARE PROFESSIONAL. It worked much better but there were still remarkable artefacts and the image was rejected again. Finally, I was advised by Art (Lostarts on DT) to use NOISE NINJA and was surprised how effectively and precisely it works. No noise and no artefacts. So, the image was accepted at DT, at last and I hope for some...

About me

I started to take photo seriously in 2009 shooting sky objects (which my PF started with). Then I extended my interest to other subjects. I would be grateful to those buyers who let me know how and where my images are used. It can be done by commenting the image that has been bought. Thank you!
