I have finally been able to use my DSI Imager Pro because of horrible Massachusetts weather. This is the 6th and best a picture of the moon I took last night. It was taken on June 20 with an ETX-105 PE, Meade Lunar Filter and 5 pictures stacked and edited with Photoshop

This is my first attempt of astral photography, i have used the LPI attached to my 125 to take a series of pictures, which i then joined together in photoshop. Unfortunately i managed to miss two small sections. I also added a picture of jupiter that i took, with three of its moons. They are at the same magnification, so that jupiter and the moon are there actual angular distances in proportion to each other.
Also thanks for such an amazing site that has brought me into the world of astronomy and astrophotography

here are some Moon photos of the Montes Apennine range. All are avi's of 30sec. at 1/150 of a sec. I used a meade DS-114 on an alt/az mount and a sac 7 ccd camera to take these photos. They were taken at my home in Washington Pa.

please find attached two pictures of our 'neighbor in the sky'.
2005-04-15, 22:00 CEST, ETX-125AT with ToUCam pro at prime focus, 400 frames
Picture 1 shows Rima Ariadaeus, a long but only 7km broad rille close to Mare Tranquillitatis
Picture2 shows the crater triplet of Theophilus-Cyrillus-Catharina, all three about 100 km in diameter. Theophilus reveals 4 central mountains (1400 m high) and smaller hills inside, Cyrillus has three and Cyrillus A (17 km) and Catharina is a partially destroyed crater. Interesting how different these three craters appear.
Thanks for posting, Mike and clear skies to all of you,

Took this picture on 4/18/05 using an ETX-125 with the LPI and filter. Moon was at zenith plus clear conditions made it perfect.
Thanks. Great site by the way!

I am so impressed with what the ETX-90 will do! I started doing moon shots for the first time on April 16th, and these were taken on April 18th! After only three days of experience, and with a rigged up Frankenstein of a camera, I got these results last night. Honestly, the camera is only patched together for testing with tape! I intend to build a better enclosure for it, but I might just get a better webcam with USB support and start over... but I have the bug now! I'll want to do more and more with my little ETX 90! Thanks for your site, it has really been a great help to me. The Webcam I was using: Logitech QuickCam VC with parallel port connection.
