I'm sure the classic fans have an image of their classic under star(moon) light.

Here is my offering....my 10"f/15 during a full moon viewing Jupiter. :grin:

I didn't install anything. That is the undermount light that normally comes with the 4 inch Unitron. Mine worked!

On the upper end of scopes the rage for the last generation has been stubby tubes (for easy transport) and supposidly lower f-ratios are better than longer scopes for astro-photography, that produce smaller magnification (who needs magnification!
