Some ETX users have sent me examples of their astrophotography. If you have some examples you would like included here please send me a description of how you made the astrophotos and a copy of the images as GIF or JPEG files (due to internet email gateway issues, please send only one image file per message). Send to Alternatively, if you have created your own web page with your examples please let me know and I'll include a link to your site.

Attached is a montage I put together from the eclipse. There were clouds during the first part of the eclipse, so I started with the full eclipse. Although I also own an lx-90, for full shots of the moon, I can't beat the etx-70, which I affectionately call Barney (the lx-90 is named Fred). Hope you can use the shot. It would be great to again contribute to such an awesome web site.

Thought I'd share my photo experience during last Thursday's Lunar eclipse. I hope you'll post this in the Film Astrophotography section, Canon camera. The forecasters were predicting poor seeing conditions for the eclipse, but when I spotted the Moon through clearing clouds, I rushed for my Meade ETX70AT, Canon A-1 (with Kodak 400 ASA) and Celestron Ultima 2X Barlow. Attached is a composite of the outcome. Exposures were aperture priority and times ranged from 0.5 to :06 seconds. Individual images were equalized in Paint Shop Pro and composed in PhotoImpression 2000.
I love my little ETX. It was just the right tool for the job. Hauling out and setting up my LX90 with ToUcam 840K would have taken too much time, given the sudden improvement in the weather.
Thanks for a wonderful web resource.

Here is a nice collage of the 10/27/04 lunar eclipse. I shot this with my Nikon Coolpix 995, Meade ETX90, 32mm lens.

I am sure you have lots of images, but why not add to the amazing selection. The set of three images here were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 995 camera through a Meade ETX 90 and 32mm Meade EP. Settings were 200 ASA, approx. 1 sec. exp. and f/2.6. These images were all around 10:15 to 10:30 timeframe.
Around Keene (south of Peterborough, Ontario), the night was next to perfect, Clear skies a light breeze and not only the odd meteor was sighted, but the coyotes were singing too. Life is good here!

Here is a picture of the Eclipse, I am sure you have or will receive many of these..... I was going to try for a sequence from first contact with the Earths shadow through totality, but the clouds did not cooperate, except when it counted most.... Totality. The clouds were still around but there were large gaps forming, enough to take this and many other pictures. Nikon CoolPix 995 and my ETX-125 with a Meade 40mm eyepiece and the Scopetronics digital camera adapter...

Attached is an image combination of the photos I took last night in Glenview, IL using my ETX90EC and an Olympus 3000 Digital Camera. Images ranged from 3 to 5 second exposures using a Scopetronix's Digi-T through a 25mm eyepiece. Photos were cleaned and moved to a single image using Photoshop.

I like the way this one came out. I call it tropical lunar eclipse. Thought you might want to post it on your Sky board.
