Behind The Lens

Location
Taken from my own back garden in Norfolk, uk
Time
10pm on a cold night
Lighting
Astrophotography is always difficult with lighting either from the moon itself or light pollution.
Equipment
Nikon D40x with T ring attachment connected to a 1300mm×150cm reflector telescope. Filter attached to T ring to reduce light from subject.
Inspiration
You don't need inspiration to photograph the moon and stars every shot gives the reason to take another.
Editing
Mostly noise reduction due to light pollution
In my camera bag
D40x with 18x55 nikkor ED II and D50 with 70x300 tamron af-s lens
Feedback
Avoid light pollution so find a good dark area. The planet rotates on a polar axis so tripods are a must however this means long exposures are out unless you have a motor driven EQ2 tripod. The moon is bright so filtering is often a must.
