Telescope: Meade ETX-105
Camera: Gary Honis Baader Modified Canon Rebel T2i
Filter: None
Guide scope: None
Exposure: 2x(4x1/250sec), ISO 400 saved as RAW
Mirror Lockup: On
Software: Nebulosity, Panorama Maker, Photoshop

The moon was so beautiful this evening and the seeing so good I just had to grab at least a couple of quick images. This is a simple 2-panel mosaic taken at the prime focus of my ETX-105. This scope has wonderful optics and does an absolutely wonderful job on the moon and planets and is particularly nice to use with my binoviewers.

Thanks, John!

I have not heard anything but superlatives about the ETX 125. The picture looks more like it was taken through a refractor, with all the detail and realistic contrast. Thanks for sharing it!
