Thank you a lot for your fantastic and very helpful site on Meade ETX-125! No doubt, it is the most informative resource on the subject in the net.
As a minor contribution to your picture gallery I have taken the courage to send you the picture of the Moon eclypse I have made with my Meade ETX-125 on May 5, 2004 in Moscow. This was my first attempt to make a picture through ETX. In case you find that the picture is not good enough please feel free not to include it.
The picture was made in Moscow, Russia. I have used a 35 mm Minolta Dynax 5 (Maxxum 5 in US) and ETX-125. The film was Fuji-800 Professional. The picture was obtained by scanning the film via Epson Photoscanner 2400. Most interesting, the picture was taken without any photo adapter, but by simply holding the camera fixed against the rear opening of the telesctope - although I did not yet purchase the adapter, I just could not let the eclypse pass without an attempt to make a picture of it.
Once again thank you very much for your wonderful site.

Last Lunar Eclipse on May 4th was a good reason to use again the capabilities of the ETX125. Its ideal for any eclipse!! At that events my C14 stays covered. So i took many images of this event with the help of my ETX125. Exactly during the time of totality here there were a few raindrops and clouds, but sharp before and afterwards of totality it was perfect and clear. Find attached one first image of this eclipse event. The image consist of 2 exposures, one with 1/2 Second for the eclipsed part of the moon and one with 1/60th Second exposure for the still not covered part of the moon. Camera used was my Olympus 2020Z and the 40mm Scopetronix eyepiece.
All the Best to You and thanks for running the worlwide best ETX homepage! It would be again a honour for me if you would place my image on your homepage!
