I captured this image on Sunday night from the backyard. I have photographed this subject many times before, but never at 275mm.

I used a Canon EOS Ra mirrorless camera attached to my Radian Raptor 61 telescope. If you would like to see more images captured using this setup, please check out my detailed Radian Raptor 61 Review.
