The moon as seen by me
We bought a 10" Dobsonian telescope for Christmas and this was the first night that the skies were clear. The sun was just setting and after letting the kids have a look, I tried taking some hand-held shots through the eyepiece. The biggest surprise for me? How quickly the moon moves because every couple of minutes I'd have to re-aim the telescope to take some more shots. I now understand why astrophotography will be beyond my grasp without some serious (meaning expensive) equipment.
This picture pales in comparison to what the eye actually sees through telescope.
