During last night's full, "super" moon, we had too much cloud cover. I had the good sense to bring out the camera a night earlier though. I've also have my son's old telescope set up since the patio's been clear of snow. I'm guessing that if we owned a more powerful and expensive telescope, I could capture a better focus, but no matter how meticulously I focus the telescope and camera separately, once I line them up, they just don't want to play nice together.

If you click "moon" or "telescope" below, you'll see I tried this in 2006 too. I was using our older Rebel then.

I like these! Kinda geeks me out a bit tho as they look like eyeball close-ups! Like something the optometrist sees when he looks in those funky goggles...

We have a telescope and I never thought of doing that. You are a girl genius! :)
