Using a LX90 telescope and a LPI camera you calculate a theoretical spatial resolution of 2 km. With this resolution the moon's diameter is about 2500 pixel. But the LPI offers only 640x480 Pixel.
Therefore I started a moon-puzzle. The photos were/will be taken on different days. Each Day only a 'column' of photos along the terminator/twilight zone, the separation line between light and shaddow. Only along this line craters and mountains reveal their three-dimensional image. Hopefully one day I have a puzzle of the complete moon.

Below picture shows the actual status with 21 individual photos. The blue moon in the background is a map out of the program Virtual Moon Atlas. For this collage the photos were 'only' scaled and rotated but not transformed. Therfore the transitions are not really 'smooth'.

Click into the puzzle to get the full resolution (2500x2500).

As written in 'How I became an astronomer', my break through in terms of astronomy happend, when I shot some 'simple' constellation photos March 2006. This is one of these photos:

Click into the picture to get the full resolution (2592x1944).

2009 it came into my mind, to photograph all (northern hemispere) constellations and to label them and their stars.

Data for below table was found at 'Wikipedia-Liste der Sternbilder'. Hyperlinks in the left column lead to the constellations in the German Wikipedia.

Hyperlinks in the right column open my own photos. (SWF) and (GIF) animated pictures. Every 5 seconds the labels show and hide again. With your mouse-keys, left for (GIF) and right for (SWF), you can enlarge the picture to full resolution. The (SWF) presentation may also be halted and manually toggled.

Other constellations will follow, but it will take a while auntil all constellation of the northern sky are shot and labled.
