The moon looks quite different viewed from NZ compared to shots taken in UK... not too surprising when you think about it really!
I played about with contrast and colours in PSP X2.
BTW, this is the moon on Friday 14 Jan at night which hasn't even reached Britain yet! (Time difference still confususes me!)

Hey Steve, these moon pics reminds me of that old Spike Milligan Joke "Buddy, does your nose run and your feet smell?" Get medical attention, you're built upside down!
Love this shot, but I think we'll have to flip a coin as to whose moon is upside down, your pic or mine Wink Am more than impressed that this was taken with an SX30...
All the best, Dave.

That got me wondering... and another clear night here tonight so just had another look at the moon. My photo is the right way up... as we see the moon in NZ. And makes perfect sense when you think about it! Being the opposite side of the Earth we are rotated 180 degrees from you in the UK... so we see the moon (and sun, stars, etc.) the other way up.
Thanks for your comment!

Cheers Dave - both our pics are actually the right way up (refer my response to Pluckyfilly) for our locations... we are actually standing upside down compared to each other, so we would see the moon the other way up!
Confusing isn't it!

PS: It's a handheld shot at equivalent of 840mm lens - the little Canon's stabilisation system works well!

I'm saying nothing Steve Wink Hand held???? @ 840mm??? Technology is going beyond me these days Wink Mine was taken tripod mounted, self timer, and mirror lock (1/15th sec @ ISO 100). I wonder what shutter speed your SX30 was registering, or did you preset it? Whatever, am well impressed. Nice one.

Hi Dave,
Camera was set at F/5.8, ISO100, 1/60th sec.
I played around with settings over a dozen shots and this turned out best.
I'm still quite amazed that handheld at 840mm resulted in such a crisp image!
Cheers -- Steve.
