    Excellent pics as usual MPH, have you ever published a book of your space shots? If not then you should seriously consider doing it.

    Thanks everyone,this was just hand held at the telescope eyepiece with a 18-55mmlens in manual and exposure of 100th/sec at iso 100
    It would be possible to do the same with a spotting scope provided the eyepiece
    is large enough in diameter,if not you end up getting just a little bit of the moon.
    It might be possible to do the same with binoculars so long as they were on a tripod,never tried it but it might work.Give it go.You might well get a pleasant surprise.

    Fantastic detail, especially considering the approach used.
    I've had a fair degree of success holding a compact camera at a telescope eyepiece, but haven't tried it with a DSLR.
