  1. wee stocking filler for the little 'uns http://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-man-on-the-moon-make-your-own-telescope-kit/p2247263
  2. got a good view tonight i think 15 sec exposure @ iso 800 f2 was too long though, what does everyone else do?
  3. struggling to get decent moon photos with my 200p I've got 200p pentax k-01 with t-ring adapter 1.25" t adapter barlow lens which unscrews the lens 32mm revelation eyepiece projection lens what ive tried : t-adaptor straight into the focuser - no focus t-ring screwed onto the 32mm eyepiece and then into the focuser and its not focusing sharply, i can adjust the eyepiece up and down it has a slider thing on it but it just doesnt have enough travel to get sharp focus t-ring screwed onto 32mm and then into barlow with no lens on it and it looks like it focuses the middle of the moon but the edges go out of focus so hard to get it properly in focus, good for adjusting how much of the moon to get in the shot but the not being totally focussed makes it a waste of time [http://i.imgur.com/dz9pY5n.jpg / http://i.imgur.com/RVBbjtw.jpg] t adaptor screwed onto t-ring and then in the barlow with no lens, this gives decent focus but its a bit too zoomed in not much use for the eclipse tomorrow am looking for a nice crisp picture of the whole moon [http://i.imgur.com/R4mO0xc.jpg] at this rate will be better off using a tripod and camera on its own or afocal many thanks for any tips
