Thank you.... all the shots were taken with my "Kit Lens"!

I am really lucky with those lightning pics...if you have closely observed - to my luck the power went down in my aread (atleast in the 2 km radius)... you everything except the lightning, a communication tower and few buildings are lit up!!

So the crop factor will give you a 480mm zoom with a the ef 70-300mm IS USM with the 400D.

If you are really interested in Astronomy, there is some software that you need to buy.

http://www.mlunsold.com/

I'm not that into astronomy myself, but I bought a copy a while back just because I found the software so interesting. It's actually very good in some ways for digital processing of ordinary photos too, and does some respects WAY better than Photoshop.

In particular the R-L image restoration after up-rezzing (interpolation) is amazing. Incredibly processor intensive mind you, but astonishingly good. They don't put the algorithm in PS because most people don't want to wait 48 hours to up-rez their photos. :-)

haha...some months ago or a year ago, I have checked the Image Plus which you were referring to...but I found it was too complicated for me so I tried to use others like the Deep Sky Stacker (DSS) and the other one which is very famous called as Registrax (its a free version).

Can you guys please share your Moon images taken with various lenses (telephoto zooms) that you have.. (it would be good if you can share unprocessed images!) so that I can get an idea of what to expect

thanks
