8" Newtonian For Lunar Imaging

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have the opportunity to pick up a Celestron 8" Newt on a CG-5 mount with dual axis drive. My first love is the moon and I would like to try my hand at lunar imaging with a webcam. Is it possible to image the moon with the 8"? I have seen some images on the web that sppear to show it is possible.

I would happily accept opinions on this.

Thanks for the replies people, you've helped make up my mind on the purchase. I have plans for a Barlow GazOC, I'm looking at a Televue, not sure on which one, leaning more towards the 3X.
