    I took this early in the night with a friends dads telescope. Had to downsize it and crop. also used auto levels and auto color in PS.

    Clouds prevented me from being able to see the eclipse and this and one more were the only ones that turned out. Not bad for holding your camera to the viewer on a telescope.

    Indeed. Since the tripod screw hole thingy-ma-jiggy is not centered with the actually lens, I cant even get a "eyepiece adaptor" to mount up for mine. So far Ive had to hold mine up as well..

    You know to tell you the truth, i dont know what kind of scope it was. It was my buddies dads scope. I'd LOVE to have one though. it was SUPER close.

    Here are some more of the shots i took that i was able to salvage.

    Cool! For years I barrowed my grandmas 60mm (supermarket store quality). And it was fine for the Moon, anything else left ALOT to the imagination heh. Now that I bought my own, I find the moon extremely too bright to look at, especially when full. Ive got some cardboard to block some of the lens, but even then it gets really bright. I need to buy a moon filter sometime to give better contrast.

    I went out tonight and took a "night" pic of mine. Stinking neighbors have left their outside light on since 1993 I think. And not surprising, they have been broken into 3 times since Ive lived next to them.

    Thats as long of an exposure as I could get with my digital camera tonight. I shielded myself tonight from their light with my sisters SUV. Here is a better shot of the scope before it got dark eariler this year:
