From Friday. Epl5 and 8 inch reflector telescope, 1000mm focal length.
Impressive. I can just about make out Neil Armstrong's footprints.
yeah, wow! Very cool!
The moon looked really big the last few nights... (your shot reminds me to look into why that is... )
Thanks guys. Aperature helps. 8" f4.9 reflector helps. The moon is roughly a half degree(or 31 arc minutes) and just fits into m43 frame. I took about 30 images until I got one that was almost perfect in focus. Seeing has been horrible the last few weeks.

ah, interesting! My wife mentioned that, so I have to tell her she was right
Djarum, a handy trick for focusing a telescope is to use a cap on the aperture. Put two or three big holes in that cap so when you look through it you see several images, one for each hole. Run the focus knob, and when all the images become one, you are in focus.
