afocal moon pic attempt


Recommended Posts

My first attempt at photography through the telescope last night was a bit rushed at half time in the football on telly and before the clouds rolled in later in the evening.

Used an old Samsung Digimax D53 at auto setting and a 20mm eyepiece with the 12" dob. Here are a couple of the results - I don't know where the glare at the edge of the moon came from; I guess maybe due to grease on the optics somewhere or overexposure. However the focus seems to be reasonable.

Next time I will use a higher quality setting on the camera and try a filter on the ep to try and reduce the glare.
