I spent the last night outside to watch the moon with the SETUP described before. It took me some time to set everything up and I nearly took 300 shots to get 20 more ore less good pictures. But I think they are pretty good for the first try. You’ll find the results below, click the pictures to enlarge them.





Actually I know that what I did is kind of amateurish, so these are the next steps to improve things: there is open source software available that allows you to take a series of pictures or a video and correlate them. This should give excellent results. Furthermore I’ll try to improve the cam housing.

To get an impression how quickly the moon passes the lens watch the video below:
