Here is a shot of the moon taken last Oct. 21st. This image was digiscoped with my Canon A-550, which is not as sharp as my later A-720 nor the current 12 meg. A-650. A 40mm eyepiece was used. Taken at 1/125 sec., f-4, and ISO 100.

The scope was my Celestron 10 inch Dob. mount, which has a 2 inch focuser. The camera mounts on a 2 inch tube that contains the eyepiece in precise position and fits into the focuser. The crater Clavius is seen in the center left of my image. This crater is distinguished by smaller craters inside of decreasing size in a perfect arc pattern.

Incredible detail on this one Gene - You may want to take it into PhofoShop and try some shadow/highlight on it and possibly recover even more detail in the bright area.

Best regards,
