Subject: First 1/4 moon photos ETX 90

I love your site! Thank you for all of the hard work you put in for
fellow ETX/Meade enthusiasts.

I have a couple of photos that I hope you will consider for your Lunar
image gallery, I am quite proud of them. I took these photos last night.
I live in Lake Mary, Florida and have an ETX-90RA. The camera I was
using is an Toshiba PDR-2300. these pictures were taken by holding the
camera up to an 32mm celestron plossl eyepiece. The camera was set on
manual mode with an EV compensation of -1.8 with the flash off. The
images were then color corrected with Paint shop Pro 8 to remove a
yellowish cast. I also applied an unsharp mask. I look forward to
hearing from you.

Thanks for providing this site on this wonderful and captivating hobby
of astronomy, I have had the ETX 125 for about 6 months now and have
gone from 6 hours at a dark site without any hope of seeing much of
anything to a backyard pier and testing various types of

The moon shot was done with eye piece projection with a very nice deal (
$ 129 ) on a Toshiba PRD-3300 3.2 megapixel camera with manual settings
of f 2.3 and a 1/250 second exposure. This camera has a bulb setting
that will allow up to a 15 second exposure, unbelievable has fast the
prices are falling on digital. The detail of the moon was much better
than expected.
