With the exception of the first shot, the rest were done using the afocal method w/ Orion Steady-pix, XT8 w/ 15MM EP
Camera is an Olympus fe26 3x Opt. Zoom. Zoom was used in the big moon picture, Both of the ones with Earthshine were done without the Zoom. However, one was shot through the EP and one was just the camera.

The first shot, I simply turned the camera away from the EP 90 degrees and shot the moon with the just the camera and the mount. The moon was getting low, so I didnt have much time. These are the best of the 20 or so shots I took.

Ill post more as I learn how to do more

The first picture was kinda hard, that plane was close to the horizon, and was hard to manually track while shooting. I used the autotimer so all I had to do was keep the plane in my FOV for ten seconds. Kinda got blurry. Still, looks good for a camera mounted to an eyepiece on a Dob.

The distortion in these and my other pics is caused by upper atmospheric disturbances. Anyone not familiar with this should look closely at those moon pics. You can see they are slightly distorted. This carries through to the rest of the pictures as well.

Its supposed to be partly cloudy tonight, I will watch the skies and if I get any good holes Ill take some more
