    Hello all, I shot this image of the moon this evening using my Celestron NGT-CG5 Newtonian telescope (8-inch) with a 2x barlow to double the magnification at prime focus. Shot at 1/80th sec and ISO 200, MLU & MC-20 electeonic cable release. Processed in Nikon Capture and a tad in Photoshop.

    original.


    Comments welcome

  4. Great shot Todd - someone posted a similar shot on DPreview using a Leica spotting scope that I thought was interesting - looks to be about the same cost as your telescope or thereabouts. I have always wanted to get into astrophotography - as soon as money permits of course. :roll:
     
  5. No Gale, that's only supposed to happen on a full moon! :wink:

  11. That is my new 300mm f2.8. I got my wife to snap a picture of me since I didn't have any except in a suit and tie.
