Yup! I used an 8" Reflector telescope (1000mm focal length) on an equatorial mount that wasn't tracking (hand positioned). I strapped an unmodified Nikon D7200 body onto an eyepiece projection rig and used... hmmm... I'm pretty sure it was a 17mm and 25mm eyepiece.

I was playing with different image scales. Unfortunately the camera knows nothing about that so it's not saved in the image data like it would be if I used a camera lens.

So the Chain of... imagery? would be Moon -> Reflector scope -> 17mm/25mm eyepiece -> adapter adjustable gap ->D7200 image sensor. All focusing is done with the telescope of course, which is interesting.

Not 100% sure. This is the first time I viewed the moon through this scope and it definitely felt like I was in orbit. I didn't look anywhere else for a while, so who knows.

Actually.... That's coming soon.

Especially since Mercury will transit over the sun this year.

Kinda sacrificed quality for "quantity"... Tried my highest magnification eyepiece. Looks blurry and grainy and kind of like old Nasa photos lol.

I have been lately but I'm brand new to this hobby. I used to shoot the moon with a 200mm Nikor and then got pissed one day because i could only barely make out the bands in a blurry greyscale.

Awesome shots...really beautiful stuff.

Stoopid question:

How do you image the sun without burning out the sensor on the camera?

Ah ok fair enough. If you want any tips don't hesitate to drop me a massage here's one of mine from last summer. Also back to bikes, saw a nice '15 ZX6R today. Very loud exhaust too...
