Crescent Moon, 4 January 2013

The Crescent Moon imaged 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.

I'm slowly learning how to use the Pentax K10D fro astrophotography. Did a whole series of test shots of the young crescent moon with the 4" Newtonian. Testing out different exposure and ISO combinations. Had to cut things short as the Moon went behind trees before the sky was fully dark. STill haven't got the hang of focussing yet.
