Had a little play with my crappy little 70mm telescope and a T mount and managed to get this.



Still have some work to do but fun none the less.

Not bad, once you start to see craters you have reasonable resolution.


This was the sun this evening.   According to the weather forecast there was dust from the Sahara in the atmosphere.

The lens is a Tamron  200-500 mm zoom lens and the camera is a Sony A33.  

This is the moon with the same combination

is the "200-500" as equated to a 35mm camera, -effectively a 300-750 (in 35mm terms) when used on a DSLR?
Nice pic by the way!

Yes  it is the actual focal length.  This lens was one of the ones that was in very short supply from  2005 on when a lot of affordable  DSLRs came on the market.   I ended up importing it from the US.

That's Ok  but it isn't a bat I am afraid, it is some kind of bird.
