Don't you believe it, you need at least three scope and cameras at that's before the solar bug strikes  :grin:

Haha I have just seen the images of HA that looks amazing. I am still mesmerised by the moon and Jupiter. Maybe one day I'll get up early for Saturn. Then there is deep space ..... already addicted :)

Trying to learn the key features of the Moon and what I actually have taken pictures of. Is the close up called Serpentine ridge? Thanks in advance!

      Hi all,
      I've been dabbling for about a year and am having a lot of fun.
      Nothing too serious and I don't have mega expectations but I'm starting to wonder if my images could be sharper and there's something I'm missing.
       
      I'm attaching a picture which is the best 10% of a 3 minute video with 500d 'bolted' straight to the 200p f5 scope. No filters...no barlows...just camera straight on.
      It's sharpened and saturated after the fact so in every way this is the sharpest I can get it.
      I've always had the same issue whether it's with a single shot, stacks of shots, or stacked video.
      Views through the eyepieces (circle-T 12.5/25) are mega sharp!
       
      I'm happy that collimation is very good and it was a remarkably clear night tonight.
      All in all I'd be pretty happy with this image (maybe over exposed a bit...) if the craters with shadows didn't make me want to rub my eyes.
       
      Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice!

      Hi All,

      Complete beginner here, with this being my first post to the forum. 
      I recently bought my first scope and I've had a couple nights so far with just viewing. I've now decided to try my hand at utilising my camera and hoping to try stack images and get a decent shot of the moon. The issue I'm having at the moment is that I can't seem to get the moon fully in frame. Using a T ring adapter and Barlow lens attached to my scope I'm essentially cropping out edges of the moon, however when I remove the actual barlow lens and use only the adapter, T ring and my scope as the prime, I can't seem to focus. 

      This may be a pretty basic issue, so apologies, I haven't had much luck with google yet. I'm unsure if I require some sort of reducer or if I'm perhaps overlooking something. 

      For reference I'm using the following:
      Celestron 130 EQ Fujifilm XT3 (APS-C) Barlow adapter/lens Kipon T2 Adapter for Fuji
      Really appreciate any guidance or advice you can offer. 

      Dylan
