July 20th, 2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, an event that changed the world forever. Just a month before the Woodstock Music Festival that attracted more than 500,000 people here on Earth, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the Moon.
It has been said that Italian astronomer, Galileo Galilei, was the first person to see the craters of the Moon while experimenting with telescope-making in 1609. That was 410 years ago! He even used to grind and polish his lenses.
Here is our first Moon Exploration video and some photos in black & white. The details are simply amazing. How did we achieve this? It’s easier than you think! There are basic things you must consider before taking pictures of the moon or any other object in space, such as how clear the sky is, and assuming that you own a DSLR camera always use the Mirror Lock-up (MLU) function, shoot in RAW mode, and don’t forget to take the pictures when the object is at the farthest point from the horizon.
