Clear sky->very moisty->bad seeing-> so try the moon. I don't know what
crater it is, I do know that 4 hours later it was raining. Couldn't get it
sharp, but let's face it..it's a high enlargement.

My first attempt at digital Astrophotography using my ETX 105EC for your
A composite of the Moon and Saturn.
The moon was taken with my wife's Minolta Dimage F-100. (4 Megapixel) Quite
happy with this early attempt.
Saturn was with My Benq DC2410 (3.1 Megapixel). You can see with Saturn I
need to get the exposure right - no use using "auto" settings.
I used a 26 x Super Plossel eypeice with a 2 x barlow (& moon filter for
the moon shot).
What terrific telescopes these are - I wish accessories wern't so expensive
though - more so in the UK since Dollars apear to translate directly to

Thought you may like to see what can be done with a little patience and a modest (1.3M pixel) Canon PowerShot A30 digital camera to get an 8.6 M pixel image!
The image is a mosaic of 15 individual photo's stitched together with Canon Photostitch software and processed with Arcsoft Photostudio 2000. It was taken through an ETX-125EC, a standard 26mm eypiece and a home made camera adaptor to couple it to the eypiece. The original image is 2794 x 3091 pixels and occupies 24MB as a BMP file so although this image has been reduced to e-mail it still contains much detail. Each individual photo was taken at 1/60 sec at f4.8 using the camera self timer set to 2 seconds to remove any residual vibration from releasing the shutter. I have since made a pneumatic shutter release which overcomes this problem. At least three photo's were taken of each individual area as the seeing was not great and the best photo of each area was selected to create the final image. One problem I did encounter in using AltAz mode is the need to aquire photo's quickly before any noticable field rotation occurs which makes creating a mosaic difficult without causing distortion of the final image.
You have created a wonderful website and valuable resource for all of us around the world with these amazing little telescopes - long may it remain!

Here are a few moon shots for the guest gallery. The blue ones were
taken with a Scopetronix #80 Blue filter. The full moon shots were taken
without a Barlow and the close-ups are with a Barlow.
The stats are:
Scopetronix MaxView 40
2x Meade Barlow
Canon G3 at 1x- 4x optical zoom
F5.6 at 1/8-1/125
Processed in Photoshop Elements 2.0

Here are a couple of shots showing a "rare glimpse" of Mare Orientale. Mare Orientale is the youngest large basin on the moon. It is located just beyond the western limb of the moon. To see it, look just south of the dark circular patch of the crater Grimaldi.
I darkened one of these photos more than usual so you can see Mare Orientale. All photos were shot with an ETX 90, Cannon Coolpix 995 camera with an 18mm wide angle lens.
Photos were shot during early morning daylight hours at around 8:00 am.

please post to Guest Astrophotographic Gallery - The Moon. Thanks.
Here is an overview of our 'neighbor in the sky', the moon. As long as the moon is NOT full it just fits into the FOV of an ETX-70AT combined with a ToUCam. You see the well known 'face' with dark areas of 'maria' as well as some larger craters. Have a look at the white 'stripes' in the maria; impact material thrown nearly half accross the moon. North is up, East left.
If you want to 'walk around' some details it's a good idea to use more magnification (ETX-125). The next picture shows one of the greatest wall areas, the crater Schickard with about 227 km in diameter. More on the bright side lies the untypical elongated formation of crater Schiller with 179*71 km. May be made out of two craters or an object 'sliding' the moon. Although our 'deek skiers' may hate him, I find it's always worth walking around with your eyes on the moon seeing the many diferent formations. South is up, East left.

Hi there! I bought an ETX-105 (UHTC) last month and I've recently had my first looks at the Moon with it.
I took some pictures (handheld) with a Fujifilm 1.5 Megapixel camera (MX-700) and 7mm Vixen Lanthanum eyepiece.
Magnification with this eyepiece is 210x.
This is one of the better pictures. Enhanced in Photoshop.(levels and unsharp masking)
Location: Ghent, Belgium _ 20030914 at 0400 local time.
The optics of the ETX proved themselves excellent in viewing the Moon. Sharp!
|Dimitri Koens [15 Sep 03]|
This is a picture of the moon on September the 3rd, my first attempt.
Made with a Meade ETX-105 and a Canon EOS IX7 in Prime Focus. The moon
just barely fitted in the frame (a full moon does not fit in the
frame!). This picture was manually exposed at about 0.5 second using a
black piece of paper in front of the scope and the camera in B-mode! All
the other pictures of the moon were exposed with a remote exposure wire,
but all were unsharp because of the motion my reflex-camera caused. I'm
happy I tried *ONE* exposure manually: a LUCKY shot!
Slide was scanned with a Minolta Dimage Scan Speed F-2800. Some color
correction was done, but I like to have it a little colored to add some
mystique. I added some black background so the image is 1024x768. I use
it as a wallpaper on my desktop. More pictures coming soon on

One of the first moon shots I have taken with my etx-105ec and Nikon
D100. It was taken at prime focus. Touch up in Adobe Photoshop 7.0. I
also had issues of motor failure due to the weight of the D100. I also
tried to take a picture of the ring nebula, but after 3 hours of
experimenting all I ended up with was a ring nebula that stretched all
the way across the frame of the picture. I am also guessing that this
was due to the weight of the D100, or could it be something else I
missed, I had the scope aligned in polar mode. Any help would be greatly
Mike here: If your "ring nebula" was stretched across the frame, that sounds like a tracking problem. Remember, the ETX does not normally track well enough for long duration photography.

ETX-105 UHTC, 32mm eyepiece, Nikon D100 with 50mm f/1.8 lens, using
afocal technique, 1/40 second, f2.8. Cropped, levels adjusted, and
sharpened in Photoshop. I had much better luck this way than when I
tried mounting the camera at the telescope's prime focus -- in that
case the motors grumbled and eventually I got a motor unit fault (would
a counterweight help?). Enjoy!
Mike here: Yes, a counterweight could help.

attached is a pick of the moon taken last night 04/08/03, just
before it dipped behind the horizon. I am still struggling with Mars
though. It is very bright here in the North/West end of Scotland. When I
look through my ETX 70AT I do not see any detail at all I have only an
25mm, 18WA, 9mm and 2x +3x Barlow at my disposable. I have been trying
for a few nights as it has been great weather up here but still with no
success with my Nikon coolpix 4500. any hints would be help full
Mike here: The ETX-70 is a fine wide field instrument. If you are looking to see lots of details in planets, won't happen. Its aperture is just too small to make a lot of detail visible. As to astrophotography hints, see the Helpful Information --> Astrophotography page.

Greetings from Peru,
I recently joined an astronomy group and I had my first outing with them last weekend. Usually the group goes observing once a month when there is a new moon, but everyone (including me) was sick the week before. So this time, the moon was out and I took a few pictures. The image is a wee bit over exposed but I was only experimenting a little and wanted to save battery power for other objects (but forgot to replace the batteries in my telescope and it died half-way thought the night). Let me see if I can remember all of the details.. Photo was taken at 10500ft in Cocachacra, Peru on Saturday June 7th, 2003 using my ETX125EX UHTC with a Scoptronix eyepiece adapter and Kodak DC4800 digital camera. This is the original untouched image.

This image consists of 27 layers. Using the Nikon 5700 at 8X zoom,the long
Raynox tube, Scopetronix MaxView 40 and trusty ETX Model M telescope I took
shots of detailed sections of the moon. These parts were then combined to
form the whole. The reslting image when complete was 12X18 at 400 ppi. I
then split this into quarters and made 4 12X18 prints at 200 ppi to create a
