Here is my sequence taken with a AT72 430mm f/6 refractor telescope & T2i near Campo, CA. Mount is an iOptron ZEQ25. Image acquisition was done with Backyard EOS and minimal exposure adjustments in Lightroom. Sequence created in Photoshop.

I was super surprised, this is my first attempt at any night shots with the 7DII. really didn't think I'd have anything as the 200mm was as big as I could go.

around a 100% crop. LR for process.

Hi folks

Here's my effort. It's a composite, obviously, taken from Magadi in southern Kenya. Since we are pretty much on the equator, the moon tracks across the sky amost directly overhead.
This was something I'd never done before and it was quite challenging. The location is an alkaline lake in the Great Rift Valley about 100km from my home in Nairobi on a diabolical road, we were harassed by security guys and the wind was howling but we had to come here to be fairly sure of clear skies.
I think the exif is intact but reflects only the base image of the soda ash factory in the foreground.

5dIII + 100-400L + tripod + ML + 2 secs timer.

I didn't get a shot this time since it was overcasted but this is what I got last time.

Multi-exposure, shot the starts and then moon then combined.

Taken w/ a 5D3 and 120-300 @ 300mm so I was definately on the short side.

Wow, I never thought or knew at the equator the moon would track a straight line up/down. Very interesting indeed!

Thank you for sharing this!!!!

I was going to ask how you got it to fit nicely in your frame. I also shot with my Edge HD 8", using the Celestron f/7 focal reducer. Then I noticed you used a 6D, while I used a 7D. Full frame vs crop sensor explains it. :) Of course, this wasn't centered, either.

Really I don't know. I install my 6D with the adapter to the Celestron and the camera connected to a laptop using Canon Utility program. I don't crop anything. Only some adjustments in Lightroom. The image was a Raw format. Maybe because the Canon 6D is a full frame.

Yes, definitely because it's full frame. I just didn't realize how big a difference it made. Also, because I'm using a focal reducer, I thought it would've been closer.

I don't have a focal reducer. Do you use a laptop connected to the camera? If don't but have one, try connecting the camera to it. You are going to get sharper images, because you can see the image of the telescope in it and can do small adjustments for better details. Always save the image in raw format to obtain the best of the picture.

My best effort. Single exposure. I am glad I managed to capture the stars as well.

If you had a F/6.3 FR you can fit the moon nicely inside an 8" SCT .
