    It's a shame you all can't buy the clear skies to go with your telescopes. :doh::)

    I did ask a manufacturer of astronomical filters if he had one, or could make one, for making clear skies. His reply............."I wish"!!:doh::heehee:

          About the best I've done, just a hand held shot of the moon, with my old Canon 30D and Sigma Bigma 50-500 ;)

            A really nice shot, Lurkalot:thumbsup::snorky: You might find that taking images of the Moon when it's waning as the surface shows up really well due to the Shadows..........

              Thanks, not anywhere near the quality of your shots, that's a cracker by the way. ;)

                Yeah, Lu, but I'm using a 12 inch SCT with a dedicated CCD camera in an Observatory:dunno: Members like Woo, Martinf, and Bilbo are taking amazing shots with either handheld shots or on a tripod with just their normal cameras. :love30::thumbsup: Have a look at the Moon images only thread and the Star Gazing thread and you'll see what I mean.:coffee::snorky:
