    I like them both. Both are very sharp and show great detail.

    Both great. Well. Wow! :cheer:

    I've stopped envying those who are able to take moon shots of the kind for else I'd long be eaten by envy ... not good ;). But yes, I still wish I could take photos like that.

    And that action shot of the rodeo ... phew! QUITE some action there. The expression on the face of the rider says it all. PERFECT moment!

    Used a telescope for it :)

    Equivalent of 1000mm plus I used a 2x barlow so in effect it is actually 2000mm. In fact it was too big to fit into the frame, this is actually 2 shots stitched together :)

    Excellent lunar shot.
    What kind of scope did you use?

    Thanks :)
    I used a Skywatcher 200 Explorer for this. One day hope to get a proper mount and guide scope setup to long exposures of deep space objects, but well..... money.....
