How can you afford...

...your own satelite ?

I think thats the best moonshot i'we seen taken from anyone outside NASA.

Do you have a tracking tripod ?

Hi Oly

Pretty impressive!

Perhaps being kind to cats & children does ...

Re: Moon tonight with E-3 & new scope

Out of curiosity, as I don't have any sort of scopes. Will it be possible to get some sort of above average moon picture with the 70-300mm +EC 20? Any ideas? Have been planning to try it out but it has been cloudy past couple of weeks here.

Re: Moon tonight with E-3 & new scope

Very nice Oly.

That has to be the best moon shot I've seen posted here.

How did you attach the camera to the scope?

Re: Moon tonight with E-3 & new scope

Wow! I just spent 5 minutes looking at the picture and it is indeed one of the best best moon shots I've seen.

Thanks for posting. I would love to see the details of the setup and possibly even a picture of the rig put together.

What other plumbing does it take to attach the E-3?

I keep looking for the flags

that the Apollo boys left up there. If this shot were just a little more detailed, we'd see them!

Wow. Just WoW!

Re: Moon tonight with E-3 & new scope

Bad lens, bad camera, bad image and finally bad photographer because...

I can't see the American flag...

...but I see you are working on it.

Thank you for sharing. I love it anyway.
