Sky Watch Friday!

crispy craters
It's been eons since I posted something for SkyWatch Friday!

.

Somebody told me that you can take a digital pic through a telescope. I tried it and think the result is astronomical, don't you? When (if) you try it, give yourself plenty of time and be patient. The telescope will get blurry shakes every time you touch it, and the moon won't stay still. Some say it's because of the moon's orbit plus the earth's rotation, but I say the man in the moon is camera-shy. Update: It's called digiscoping, and birdwatchers, like my friend Maalie do it all the time. I just discovered his post on the topic from March 7.

Hi Craver!
This is an awesome shot! I've heard about this but never tried. Now I will.
Congrats Grandpa! What a handsome little one you have there.
