Some old stuff I took from an airplane (taken 13 July 2010). This was one of the most beautiful and awesome sights I've ever witnessed in my life, the pictures really do not capture what it was like to see this. I felt very fortunate to have been able to view such a spectacle. The objects are Venus and the Moon. View in full res.

Those are great shots. I have yet to figure out how to get such quality out of my camera.

Years of experience (and some skill with photo editing to make it just right). I've been doing this for a few years now and the rate at which I'm learning and refining has yet to decrease. No matter where you're at, you can always go farther. In a few years I'll probably be complaining about how bad my current stuff looks happy

My first, best, and flukiest shot of Jupiter. It's a stacking of the frames of this video.

Wow, you can even see GRS, great shot!

Here's a shot I got of the Moon last night. It was the thinnest crescent I think I've ever seen!

Thank you! Means a lot coming from you - I wish I could get images half as good as most of yours. That one I posted was captured on a crummy old Canon point and shoot - the barrel just happened to be the right diameter to fit snugly into the eyepiece slot on a 5x barlow in my telescope. As you can see from the video, it's shakey as heck. Registax just ran through the video with minimal input from me (my first time using it), and outputted that.

I've put videos through it since that were much crisper and clearer, and much steadier, but all I got was a smear of Jupiter colours... which is why I call that one fluky.

I was very proud of the fact that you can see (if you zoom in) the whorls of bluer gas from deeper in the atmosphere brought to the surface by convection currents... but if by GRS you mean Great Red Spot, I was not aware that it was visible in that picture!

I do mean that, and maybe it isn't, I just noticed a feature in the image that looked enough like it for me to declare that. Maybe it's not though.

Yeah, looking at it again I think it isn't. Still a really cool image though.

I believe that i have seen even a thinner crescent, but i'm not sure.

Once the Earthshine was so bright that even though it was new moon, the Earthshine created a nice effect on the lunar surface. smile

It looked even thinner to the eye. The camera really can't adequately reproduce the scene.

I've seen a 1% illuminated thin moon, a day after new moon, in march this year:

Smallest I've ever seen (not counting the Solar eclipse I've seen) was 2.5 days after new Moon... But it was at midday, so that was very hard to see it (I think Venus was easier to see that day; it was one of the few times I've seen it around midday.

Not really sure where to post this, but I think it fits here, http://thierrycohen.com/pages/work/starlights.html#
"Digital photographer Thierry Cohen envisions what cities around the world would look like after dark in his series Villes éteintes ("Darkened Cities")."

Is this realistic? would we actually be able to see this much?
