Description

A prime-focus image with an exposure of 1/125th of a second at ISO 100. The moon was a little under 30 degrees in altitude, so the result is not quite as detailed as I have been able to achieve when the moon was higher. Altitude does make a big difference!

The Meade MTS-SN6 is a 6-inch f/5 Schmidt-Newtonian from the 1980's.
