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 etx@me.com. 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.

Lunar Eclipse
Partial lunar eclipse animation (1.45megs)
I only had a 30 minute viewing window, but you can see the movement of the penumbra. Each frame was taken 60 seconds apart. I used Gimp to pan and scan them into alignment.

Lunar Eclipse
I have attached a .jpg of the partial lunar eclipse from Sydney, Australia at 9:15pm AEST on 28 July. This is about 15 minutes from mid-eclipse (This was during a break in the clouds!) Meade ETX90EC with a Nikomat EL attached to the photo port with the short portion of the ETX camera adapter. Exposure was 1/500th sec on Agfa 400 HDC colour negative film.
