Shoot the Moon

Try these tips to create your own lunar mosaics using a webcam.
Creating a lunar mosaic worthy of wall space can be a rewarding experience. To get started, you need a webcam, a clear view of the Moon, and some time. But to construct the most aesthetically pleasing lunar portrait, try the following tips by renowned astrophotographer and author Robert Reeves. He shows you how to optimize your webcam setup, control your camera, and convert the digital files you capture into breathtaking still images. Having a large number of quality still shots from which to choose allows you to construct a lunar mosaic you'll be proud to frame.

Robert Reeves is an astrophotographer and author of three books: Introduction to Webcam Astrophotography (Willmann-Bell, 2006), Introduction to Digital Astrophotography (Willmann-Bell, 2005), and Wide-Field Astrophotography (Willmann-Bell, 2000).
