Description
I successfully took a picture of the moon using my Celestron CGEM DX 1100HD telescope for the first time with my Nikon D800 36 megapixel camera at the prime focus. I used 200 ISO with a shutter speed of 250th/sec to take it. Since I took it through the living room window, it is not as clear as it would have been if taken outside. But it did give me a chance to test my equipment and I did not have to go outside in the extreme cold to take it. Just imagine what this picture would have looked like if it had been taken outside!
