Be warned that some telescopes (newtonians) don't allow you wind the focus in far enough to reach focus with a DSLR.

Thank you.

Single shot, Moose. Just a couple of times a year the moon sets over the end of our street. As I was bringing the dogs home from our evening walk I saw it was about to happen so grabbed the big lens and waited in the end of our cul-de-sac for it to reach the right spot.

A few moments later it sank behind a cloud and was gone!
