Sky-Watcher150P Newtonian Reflector with a Canon EOS 500D SLR on EQ3 mount.

As I’m new to astrophotography this was a simple attempt to capture the moon with my SLR attached directly to the telescope. I was very pleased and surprised at how sharp the image was and it has not been altered or processed in any way.
