    I just got started into digiscoping last year.

    Sony Cyber Shot 2.1 Megapixel and an Orion 127mm Telescope with a 32mm eyepiece.

    I have a little vignetting around the left and towards the bottom.

    Very nice. I'm interested to find out the lens you used to shoot this.

    Wow, that's an awesome shot. If I wanted to be really nitpicky, perhaps a tiny bit dark. But jesus, I certainly can't complain...this rocks! :D

    The wife got me the telescope for our anniversary last year. I kept wondering if I could hook my digital camera up to it and finally found a website that makes adapters for all types of cameras so they can be used for astrophotography. (www.scopetronix.com) I've been digiscoping ever since.

    I figured I'd been lurking on this site without registering long enough.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm in the market for a new Digital SLR and I was told to check out some of the photography forums and read, read, read before I make my decision.

    Yup, it's just like starting a reef tank (and just as expensive!) ;-)

    Welcome aboard Kevin!! Love the avatar. Do a search through some of my old posts for some of my reef shots (I have a 125), or just check out my website when you're bored. Do you ever go to reefs.org? I'm Sharkky over there, and run the photography forum.

    Cheers mate!

    Nice Shot. Did you have to use a motor drive on your teleschope to track the moon?
