EquipmentMeade 114mm DS series Saturn reflector telescope, on Meade alt-azimuth mount, with a Meade 40mm super plossl, and an Olympus C-750 UZ digital camera, exposure time: 1/10 second, at f/2.8, ISO 50.
DescriptionThe Waxing Crescent Moon, taken through a telescope, I set the sharpness on the camera as high as it would go to make more detail come out. The Moon was probably about 10 degrees high when I took this.
