Taken with my first scope, a Skyhawk 1145 on manual mount and using an old VGA Logitech webcam.

nice shot Andy, I have the 1145p with the goto to and I used my mobile and the 25 mm to take pictures of the moon which I posted for a previous competition on the site, some of which were close up of craters, give it a go as you might get some more nice shots this way. 

I used this method as I don't have the equipment to try the more precise ways of taking snaps

Thanks very much. I loved the Skyhawk at the time and the views it gave. Great thing about this hobby is that we cobble together bits and make do where we can, yet the results are always pleasing... providing the clouds keep away ;)

 

Wish I still had my rig and more time to enjoy the night sky.

Was the image taken within the timeframe of the contest?

Sadly not, I only read the rules after posting. This was my first image ever many years back, my last rig was on my signature (which I miss).

Apologies, but am still happy to share the image however :)
