Moon shot through Orion Starblast 62

This moon shot was taken through the Orion Starblast 62mm refractor with a Nikon D3200 prime attached with a 1.25 filter holder to T internal with a Baader IR/UV Blocker
Added the IR/UV to remove some of the small faint blue hue around the Moon. The Orion Starblast 62mm is a 4 lens system with two at the objective and two small ones towards the end of the light cone which adjusts the field to be flattened.
This eliminates the use of a field flattener attachment and the DSLR connects directly with a T to SCT adapter at the focuser. The Orion Starblast 62 has SCT threads at the end of the focuser.
