Comment : For first time I use my telescope to catch the Moon. I can only take photos of when it rise, but not until had come to10 degrees above horizon. One hour later it's behind a house.

    Comment : This is a zoom in to the rim of the shadows. You should see the shadows move if you study it long time enough which I couldn't.

    It's a 1:! pixel relation and the focal length is 910 mm. The camera sensor is a full frame 36 x 24. To cover the whole sensor you need about 2500 mm focal length.
