Astronomy picture of the week - The Moon


THIS full moon picture sent in by Andrew Sharp was taken using a Canon DSLR with a 55-250mm telephoto lens. Andrew took this shot using just his camera and lens mounted on a photographic tripod, exposure  for the shot was 1/250. 

This image illustrates the fact that you do not need an armoury of telescopic equipment to start taking pictures of our nearest celestial neighbour. 

Well done Andrew and thanks for sending us this weeks image to the North Wales Astronomy Society.
