    Great shot....must have a good sturdy tripod or a low resting pulse, did you mirror up or not ?

    I have a Manfrotto 190CX tripod... but the main improvement I found was the DIY bracket I put together to help brace the lens/body and move the pivot point to get the setup balanced and more stable..

    I normally shoot tethered either off my Android tablet with DSLR Controller or my Mac Air so mirror is up anyway...

    The setup I use...

    ...biggest issue is how quick the moon moves at what is effectively just over 1200mm focal length...


    Planning on getting a tracking mount this year and try some deep sky objects as well..

    There's a guy on a photography forum I am on, uses a tracker mount and a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope... his results are astounding... one day I might get that involved but its a fair trek to a dark site for me so won't happen just yet.

    Have managed to get a decent milky way shot though considering the light pollution in the area I took it

    Couple of more recent shots...

    A 34% waxing crescent...

    ...and a 99.7% waxing gibbous last night...
    [​IMG]

    Full(ish) moons always seem to be a little trickier to expose due to the more harsh way they are lit... last night wasn't the clearest of nights tbh and there was quite a bit of atmospheric turbulence which gives a very 'wavy' view... focus was not as sharp as a result but there is some detail there thankfully :)

    Aye... partial moons always seem to present better detail due to the way they are lit vs fullish moons...

    Determined to find a way to get over that though... using the tracker, playing with exposure and finding somewhere out of town should help...

    Clear night last Thursday so tried something a little different... used my tracker mount and Pluto Trigger to take 50 images to stack and process
    IMG_20181018_200340.jpg

    This was the result...
    [​IMG]

    Worked out better than the edit I did on a single frame... :)
