Remarks:
Afocal photography. Moon was at 37o altitude, just after an occultation by a tall building! I was very well surprised by the level of definition of the picture, this encouraging me of the possibilities of enjoying astrophotography with a simple grab and go equipment from the very center of a large city! Thanks WO!

I am 40 years old and astronomy has attracted me since I was 14 years old, when my parents gave me as a present a smal reflector telescope. After many years not really practicing astronomy it was one year ago when the bug bite me again and I rewarded myself with your great FD! My astrophotography experience has been limited to some moon aphocal shots. I hope I will step up to more serious astrophotography set up when I have a more convenient place.
