Default Space - A few recent renders

Three recent renders

Earth and Moon from 420,000 miles. This is about equivalent to an x15 small telescope view.

L3 ascending. The Soviet L3 lunar complex heading for the Moon.

HOPE-VASIMR leaves Earth. New render of an old mesh.

Those are great. I like the middle one especially.

Thank You! I was really unsure if that one worked...

Very nice work on the earth/moon details; but is the composition optically possible? Once you properly scale the moon against the earth (both for size and the ~380km distance), the earth would have to be much smaller in the shot, no?

Of course, if you were going for the "artistic license" approach so that we could see both details together, then I guess that's ok, too

No, I did the sums - from beyond the moon looking back, such a view is possible, though the field of view is about 2 degrees.

Think about it - from very close to the moon, the moon is much bigger.
From far away much smaller.
By picking the right distance you can get any relative size in this range.

I was having difficulty wrapping my head around this, no doubt because there are so few examples of the moon captured in this manner. You are certainly correct, and I used your explanation to successfully replicate the effect.

This is such an eye-opener for me because I do so many space and orbit shots and have always presumed I had to give up detail on one body when trying to fit both into the frame.

Very cool, indeed. Thank you!

Glad you liked it!

I'm trying to shift from my "here's a model what can I do with itr" appoach to conceiving a cool image first!
