Start with the Moon

If you want to photo the moon up close you need a telescope and it must be tracking the subject.Anyone can take great pics of the Moon if they just follow simple instructions. 1. Don't expect too much to begin with. Afocal or eyepiece projection is needed for close up like this and just the camera body attached to the scope like you would to any lens and use Manual not Auto settings. Practice, practice practice... as that is the only way to learn.
If anyone wants help, just holla, OK?
That's a great shot, especially since it appears to be a single 1/2-second exposure, with no multiple shot stacking. You must have some superb seeing and excellent optics! Is that Tycho? Thanks for the tips on Moon imaging. Its a nice place to start for getting some spectacular images. Its big, bright and always interesting.
