Moon First Quarter

One of the easiest astrophotos I ever took. I just aimed a point-&-shoot digital camera into the eyepiece of a telescope and snapped the picture. Minor processing in Irfanview. _Imager: Fuji FinePix 2600Z 2MP digital camera. _Scope: Phoenix 80S 80mm f/6 "semi-APO" refractor, 9mm eyepiece (afocal method). _Exposure: 1/32 second. _Guiding: n/a (scope on fixed tripod. _Date: May, 2007 (EXIF is wrong). _Location: Waterloo, Ontario.
