I finally got off my butt and took a photograph through my telescope - this is the moon just after 12:00am today 5/31/2020. This is a single jpg shot, no post processing and highly reduced to fit size constraints here. Comments welcome. 

 

Camera - Pentax K-1ii

Scope - ES 127 FCD100, focal length 952mm.

Camera mounted direct to telescope diagonal via a M48 T-ring.
Focused using live view with contrast peaking function. 1/125 sec @ iso 100.  

 

I did take about a dozen raw snaps of the moon at this exposure which I’ll look into stacking.

 

Regards,

Gpsfool
