Even though I can photograph the Moon at prime focus with my 1,000mm reflex lens, I seem to get better results using this lens as a telescope. I am able to couple a zoom eyepiece to it and digiscope using my Sony H70 P&S camera. Here is a moon photo made with the scope setup at 50X and the camera zoom at 41mm(35mm equiv.). The image is a crop of the original.
