With Nikon's D80 CCD, it's about 3.2 degrees field of view for 500 mm lens, so by adding to it uncropped picture size of 3872 x 2592 pixels, it's pretty possible to get Moon that big, after cropping almost half of the image.Zatnikitelman, that only took a 500mm (Telephoto?) lense to get such a close-up of the moon?
Beautiful - what was your magnification? I have seen the ISS twice at 180X using hand guiding, but I would like to try it at lower if possible, so that tracking is easier.That's a very nice shot of the comet McWgogs! You can really see the tail clearly. Here's a video of ISS I shot tonight. It was an 82 degree pass and I was able to follow it almost all the way up to the top; at the end of the video the LX200 started its automatic cord untangle maneuver (kind of like an equatorial mount flip) and I wasn't able to reacquire it on the other side until it was behind a tree.
