Clear skies tonight, and the full moon hung in the low East sky. I thought I'd try out the new D7000 on it and shot it through my William Optics 66mm Petzval. The result is lovely. Near-full moons are hard to achieve focus on all around. I love the live view option on the D7000. I can turn it on, focus on the telescope until I get what appears to be the sharpest image possible, and shoot. This will be excellent for my DSO photography!
(Otherwise, for regular photos, the D7000 is stunning. I'll post some images on my Photo blog soon.)
