It's time to wake up Episode 5!

After a frustrating 45 mins trying to fix my telescope's RA drive, I couldn't be bothered with a proper polar alignment. So I could only manage 2.5s exposures. Here are 17 stacked together to show my first pic of....

    Mike, last one looks really great.Just enough shadow to pop out those craters...

    400 mm with 2x TC seems like a good combination.
    How small is small?
    Well, if it's bigger than 23x16mm, then it is huge!

    Thanks slo.Metallc! I was really pleased with this one.... my best yet.

    This shot wide open (F9.) But, of course being smaller than F8. this combination is manual focus only. Still, for static subjects its seems pretty good, if you have the time to dial in focus correctly.

    This view is what you get in the viewfinder with A77ii, 400 + 2X converter. I did not crop vertically, only horizontally for a 5:4 aspect ratio. Processed in LR and NIK.
