Looking at your camera/lens set-up I'm amazed that you were able to even geta picture with your contraptions let alone the best moon shot that was everposted on this forum!! My hat is off to you Sven! Ingenuity at its best. Bravo.

thanks again!

> How much does that set up cost then as its pretty close.

These are old used SLR parts. The reversed 50mm (used 20€) can be used for macros and the 500mm (new around 120€) can be adapted to any kind of camera. This is too much money for some moon shots!

I have tried to attach a very good Zeiss binocular, but this was a mismatch.
Good telescopes with 2'' eyepieces can be used. If you spend all this money for the optics and the motorized tripods, you should look for a small digital nikon. These cameras with their small lenses are used by many "stargazers".

Hey Sven, I think that's the best moon shot I've seen so far. It's to bad you can't carry that lens around with you. No insect or bird would be save from Sven's photographic eye.

thanks Don,

there is a smaller version with a 500mm mirror lens ;-)
But this optics can not be used with moving objects.

For those who have missed it ....

This (!!) is a fantastic moon shot:

Sven, EXCELLENT moon shots! I'm amazed you were able to get that much detail out of an almost full moon! Jim

thanks Jim!

There is even more detail in a nearly "empty" moon.

Choosing the right contrast tools help in this case.
