Motorcycles, tools, and garages! A little bit of everything mechanical and technical.

Missed the blood moon, but not the full moon!

Not great quality, so forgive me. Picked up this telescope at a local goodwill store for cheap.


Finally had a chance to try it out the other day (the day AFTER the blood moon... we were socked in with clouds).

I though these turned out pretty nice for just holding my phone up to the lens and trying to snap some pics!

The complete moon:


Moon is only the bottom right corner of the pic, the other arc is the edge of the eyepiece.


Don't know anything about the moon but that big 'ole bug splat mark is pretty neat.


Closest I could get. Check out the craters!


It was really hard to get that pic- you could actually see the moon moving across the field of view!
