G1 shot of moon with BIG lens...
May 31, 2009

Hi All,

Finally took my trusty, siberian TAL2M telescope out into the garden and attached the G1 via an M42 adapter.

I must say the G1 makes for a fantastic tool for astronomical photos, the articulated screen, live histogram and MF assist make using it a doddle. So much easier than trying to focus squinting through an optical view finder while bending your neck into all kinds of unnatural positions!

If you have a telescope I'd thoughly recommend it.

It was a barming night last night, so the seeing was a little unsteady, but I did manage to avoid the kids paddling pool. I'm quite pleased with the result, just a little contrast and sharpness enhancement in silkypix,

Hope you enjoy,

Mike
