Full Moon

Once I saw that my EOS 300D could easily be mounted on my father's telescope, I immediately had to get one of those T2 adaptors... This image of the full is among the first pictures I took with this equipment.

When shooting the moon at 2000mm focal length with a crop factor of 1.6 it gets too large for fitting on one single frame. This image, hence, is a mosaic stitched out of 3 exposures. I had to active the mirror lockup function since the vibration caused by the flipping mirror is quite visible at this focal length.
