All pictures were taken with an
8" LX200 SCT telescope
using an SLR camera.
Prime focus shots of the moon is one of the easiest types
of astrophotography. The moon is bright and relatively easy to focus through
an SLR camera. Guiding is not required. Eyepiece projection is more demanding
and requires a steady atmosphere.
