Moon 6 January 2014

The  Moon imaged on 6 January with a 1/60th second exposure at ISO 1600 taken with a Pentax K10D through my 4" reflector using a a T-ring adaptor. Click to embiggen for full effect (the compare with the image from the 4th).The Crescent Moon imaged on 4 January with a 1/60th second exposure at ISO 1600 taken with a Pentax K10D through my 4" reflector using a a T-ring adaptor. Click to embiggen.

More testing with the Pentax in through telescope mode. Doing more test shots at ASA 800 and 1600, with various exposure times, even with the Moon being brighter and higher above the horizon, ASA 1600 and 1/60 second exposures seem to be the best. Still having issues with focus, but now that I have a better handle on exposure I can get a better handle on the focus issues.
