David,

Thanks for your pictures, I think the ones with the Meade and the Sony are excellent.

I could not find the focal length of the ETX-125 (1250mm ?), but you have a very detailed picture of the moon and one can see stripes on Jupiter.

I have a 600mm L lens and I never got anything good with it for Jupiter. Did you ever try to attach your camera, either one, directly to the telescope with a T-Ring? I am impressed that you could get such a sharp image just by hand handling the camera on, I presume, the eyepiece.

I will have access to my 2 telescopes (old C-8 Celestron and a Meade ETX-90 AT) this summer and I sure will try your way.

Best,

Simon
