Stacking Meade f/6.3 and GSO 0.5x focal reducers, and mounting without diagonal mirror, managed to frame all the visible Moon on the ASI 034MC planetary camera. Image was so bright that gain and exposure needed to be set at the minimum configurable, even using moon and skyglow filter.

Part of my tests to use this camera for DSO real-time observing.

Very bad seeing.
