Can the same equipment be used to take moonshots??
I mean, e.g. if I would have one of those Nikon Fieldscopes and use it for both purposes.....

Has anyone tried it before/already??

Please post some pics of setup and shots taken.

Thanks in advance for all the replies,

Essentially yes. Depending on the scope and camera. With fixed lens zoom shooting afocal (through eyepiece of scope) you can have framing control. With a dSLR the scope becomes the only lens and you are subject to the native focal length plus crop factor if any.

The top image with the Canon D30 and Meade ETX-90 and the bottom one with the Nikon CP990

Lin, That top image is fantastic for only a 90mm telescope. Excellent work. Here is one I took through a 125mm diahomebuilt telescope using and a Rebel XT without an eyepiece. Kinda blew the highlights, but still decent topost.
