This video made me giggle. I hope you enjoy it too.

Here's a couple of good pictures of the moon I captured the other night.

Sony Cybershot DSC-T9, 5.1mp digital camera with a homemade 8" Newtonian telescope, 30mm Meade series 4000 Super Plossol and Meade #140 Apochromatic Barlow. Camera was set on automatic mode with mechanical image stabilization active. First image taken without the Barlow.
