Visit Worldwide Topsites

Monday, 17 March 2014

6 days Moon phase in action between 8 and 14 March 2014 (video).

This is a changing of the lunar illumination within 6 days beginning March 9 and ending on March 14, 2014. In that period the sky was mostly clear, and so I decided to go for observations through the telescope, almost every night at my block.

The devices used were two DSLR cameras: Nikon D80 (mine) and D60 (Radu Conopan) as follows:

9,10,12 and March 14, 2014 photos are made with Nikon D80, and on March 11, 2014, with Nikon D60.

I wanted to get to complete the cycle with the full Moon, but I did not because it had started a rainy weather.

In the video below, are the same pictures edited in Sony Vegas 10. Images were positioned so as to match one another.
