Luke and the Moon

During the last few months my 6 years old son, Luke, and me have been taking photos of the Moon using my telescope (a Skywatcher Black Diamond 80, f=600mm) and my CANON 5D Mark III camera. We are trying to get all phases of a full lunation of the Moon compiled in ~28 images.

I’ve been compiling some of those images in a Twitter thread, let me include here some of these images:

I hope that we can show you the result of this work soon! I’m so happy Luke is showing that enthusiasm taking the photos and helping me to combine the data. That seems a very nice project for kids!

  1. A great way to spend time with your son, Ángel.
    Mark my words, he’ll soon be teaching you what to do!
