I don't normally shoot the moon, but driving home from the movies at midnight last night and it looked amazing. Thought I would give it a shot.

Whilst waiting for Jupiter and Mars to rise, I pointed the telescope and Canon 5D Mk IV at something a little closer; our very own Moon.

Cheers

Dennis

PS - ignore the Canon 800mm lens in the meta data - I used a telescope with efl of 3860mm :-)

Wow! Very nice!

What telescope did you use for this? I would love to be able to do this if I can find enough cash in my wallet!

Thanks - warning: astronomy is a hobby that eats cash perhaps more so that photography!:-)

The telescope is a Takahashi Mewlon 210, which has a mirror diameter of 210mm and a focal length of 2415mm. I used a x1.6 Extender to give me 3860mm. The design of the 'scope is known as a "Dall-Kirkham" which gives a sharp, sweet spot in the centre with coma increasing towards the edges.

I would recommend dropping by your local astronomy club to have a look at the different 'scopes there and chat with members about telescope selection before you consider purchasing one.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Thank you Dennis. Your scope is a bit pricier than I was hoping to get for my first telescope.

Thank you also for the tip to contact an astronomy club.

I just googled astronomy club, and came up with a club in the next county over from where I live, 17 Miles from where I live, it would be doable. They meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:00PM

Problem is, I work 2nd shift 4PM to Midnight.

Unfortunately, I live too far away from any astronomy clubs.

No telescope for me yet so I have to make do with my Sony FE 100-400 lens + 2x extender.

Heavily cropped Waning Gibbous Moon from tonight.

That's the same set up (100-400 and 2x converter) I use on my 7D2...

Your image is pretty spot on, focus wise; better than most of mine, i think.

This is one of my cleanest ones...

Nicely exposed shot. An advantage you enjoy is the crop sensor of the 7DII and the advantage my camera has is the 42mp sensor which allows for heavier cropping.

I have the new Sony a7rIII and the Focus Magnify feature in MF is a great help. I can magnify the view in the viewfinder x6.2 times while focusing manually and the higher resolution viewfinder screen is much better at showing detail than my a7rII was at that magnification.

I do this in live view too, but I hand hold all mine and it's a bit wobbly... :p
