First Moon Picture

This Christmas, my wonderful GF got me something I have wanted since I was a small boy, a telescope. A;damn fine one;too. I have always fancied giving astrophotography a shot, so I got the requisite attachment to hook my;D80;up to the scope. I tried many permutations of T-adaptor and ring to get a sharp image, but to no avail… or at least not in prime focus mode. I then tried projection mode, which requires inserting an eyepiece into the T-adaptor.; This is the shot I got. 150 sec @ ISO400
