Default Lunar Photography

My next door neighbor has a 200mm Dob Telescope
I hooked up my EPL-5 and shot through the eyepiece
This would be great for super Zoom photography but the lens weights 25 lbs

And after a few unsuccessful attempts

That is a super shot, Fred. How did you attach your camera to the telescope?

I like the B&W version Fred.

My telescope is an old model that do not receive camera adapters, well there is not any more in the market adapters for this model.

I am assuming you used a fast shutter speed and high ISO for this shot, what kind of metering did you use to expose the moon?

Marcelo
I wanted to get the iso as low as possible using ESP matrix metering
The very bright light of a 70% moon allowed me to do this.
About 15 shots experimenting and these settings were the best
iso was 200 and shutter was 1 200 exposure -1 ( tripod )
Manual focus . Highlights and Shadows adjust in Elements 8

I think both versions are equally nice. Great job Fred.
