Astronomy and Astrophotography for the Beginner and Try-Hard Amateur!

Blogspot seems to resize images, so the last lunar image wasn't quite as impressive as the full version I have. So, I cropped the lunar polar region and made this image to give you an idea of the level of detail I was able to achieve.
Again, 6" dobsonian with no tracking, using a handheld digital camera held up the 21mm Stratus eyepiece.
Again, click on the image to see a full size shot.
