    Very nice. Did you need to crop at all?

    Yes. Heavily! The image occupied only the central rectangle of the 3x3 grid in the viewfinder window. It almost exactly filled the circle of the spot metered area. It was a 'grab' shot. I stood the telescope on my picnic bench, everything was manual because the batteries for the drive motors were flat!
    I'll try harder next time. :smile:

    Moonshot setup!

    Thankyou for the kind comments.
    I have posted a picture of the actual setup used to take the picture in the adapted lenses forum.
