Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold.
7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little.
Camera: Canon 600D
Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
Shutter speed: 1/400s

I'm a keen moon observer (and new here), primarily using 15x50 Canon image-stabilized binoculars, but also an old 4-inch 'scope that recently broke.
I want to take things to the next level and invest in a 'scope powerful enough to study lunar features as the terminator creeps, including craters, mountain ranges, and perhaps even the lunar X, etc. It would be great to have the option of photography in future if that doesn't hugely change what I should buy, but observing is by far my primary goal here. Any suggestions please? Budget is £1.5k+.
