People...This is PURE spectacle...

Thank you Steve! The name of the telescope is Synta 10" (10 inches). By the way: when you will be going to visit Poland, please let me know, maybe we will have occasion to meet and you will try it yourself, but I'm warning - there's no Image Stabilizer :-)

I love your added comment Grzegorz I’ve been there! Heart beating faster, will it, won’t it, the let down of a near miss followed by the resolution to keep trying. I know that luck is only a small part of capturing a shot like this, and I’d like to congratulate you on your patience, dedication and above all the quality of your telescope images. I don’t know what telescope you’re using but it sure beats my Canon 600mm + 2.0X converter!

Wonderful shot! I wish I could get such a pic one day.

Christian, sometimes dreams are getting true, I wish you good luck in realizing it. Few years ago it was also my dream, to have equipment and luck for this kind of photo, and just look what happend ;-) Randall - yes, it was really amazing, when after 5 days of planes flying just inches from the moon, without hope I was observing this 747, ready with my telescope and I realize that he will pass exactly like I wanted! In that moment the most difficult was to stay calm and keep waiting for him :-)

Well done! Magnificent! I can only imagine the patience required.

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It was developed by the Japanese Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA) in an effort to simplify and standardize the exchange of data between imaging devices and software. Exif is a variation of JPEG, used by almost all digital cameras to record extra interchange information to image files as they are taken. The type of information stored in a file varies by camera model, but it can include such things as date and time a photo was taken, resolution, camera settings used for the shot, amount of compression applied, color information, whether or not the flash was fired, shutter speed, name of the camera owner, and so on.

Most photo manipulation software released after 2001 supports the reading of Exif information, however, if you want to ensure that the information is retained within your picture files, you must use software that supports Exif. The Exif information is lost if you save a picture in a program that doesn't support it. There is also specialized software specifically for extracting and editing Exif data.

Please be aware that, while most photos displayed on JetPhotos.Net contain EXIF information, some do not.
