    Of course it is.

    The larger size is caused by a refraction of light when the moon is at the horizon because the light has to pass through greater amounts of atmosphere to reach you compared to when it is overhead.

    Wow you have a camera with a APS-H sensor and not the smaller APS-C sensor.. If you are getting a blurry image it can only be a couple of things that cause it. 1 camera movement2. not in focus.You can try using a tripod, another would be using a remote shutter release, if you do not have one you can set the self timer on the camera. The idea here is to give the camera time to settle down after the mirror has moved. That movement can cause the image blur. Also you can use the mirror lock up. Just pressing the shutter button can cause camera movement which in turn causes blurry images. Another option is increasing the ISO that you are using and shoot with a faster shutter speed. But note there are trade offs in doing this. With older cameras cranking up the ISO may have side effects of i…

But note there are trade offs in doing this. With older cameras cranking up the ISO may have side effects of introducing noise into your image.You do not mention the lens you are using, but it is possible at the long end of the lens, the image itself just isn't sharp. This happens with more lenses then you would think. For example the Canon 75-300mm lens is not as sharp at the long end as it is in the middle range of the lens. You would fine that the Canon 55-250mm lens is much better overall. So the lens you are using can play a big part of how sharp your image is, especially at far length images.What ever you do DO NOT get discouraged. It takes time and practice.

    "Carried to the extreme then the sensor in a mobile (about 4 x 3mm) is better." actually it isn't because of the simple fact that the larger the sensor the better performance it has. This fact has nothing to do with the apparent increase in the field of view. There are many technical reasons a smaller sensor is not a better choice.

    no, do not add baking powder, unless you are looking for a metallic tasting bread. More then likely you did not proof the dough long enough before putting it into the oven. You should let the dough rise until doubled in size. Don't think because you let it rise for a set number of minutes it is good to go. Also over kneading the dough will cause this. Without knowing what steps were done it is hard to say exactly why your bread is too dense. When kneading with a mixer such as a Kitchen Aid I find about 7-10 minutes is good and if kneading the dough by hand usually 15 minutes.By all means don't get discouraged because of this and give it another try.

  • that would be called a modified square wave and really shouldn't be used on sensitive electronics IE: computers, or inductive loads like a refergrator

    they are not passing DC through the transformer it is a pulsed DC that is being passed and then stepped up by the transformer, in this case 220V this is not AC but a pulsing DC IF you look at it on a O-scope you would clearly see it is not a AC signal but a pulsating DC square wave. Anyone with a very basic understanding of electronics would know that. You are introducing a 12 V square way and the output is a stepped up pulsating DC Square wave. All transformers can indeed pass a pulsating DC voltage.

    I make it quite often, though my bread recipe only calls for 4 cusps flour and 1 1/2 cups water approx. and just 1 teaspoon of salt. I get 2 - 2 pound loafs from it. I am not really sure just what putting black pepper into it brings to the table
