Nice moon shots everyone. We got clouded over right before the event started.
Sorry to hear about that, you must have been bummed!
Attached is are my shots The first one I used a bigma lens with a Pentax k-5II and GPS-01. The second I used a Pentax K-5 on a 5" telescope with reasonable tracking. The third I composed an HDR photo with the same telescope.

Awesome shots everyone!!

Very nice shots. "Bummed" pretty much describes it.

I was on holiday and didn't bring a tripod, so I only had the 55-300 and a window as support:




I'm actually happier with the shot I took with my DA35 Ltd macro:

Had a go at the Andromeda last night. Shot (K-5, 150-450 at 450mm, f5.6) from my drive-way, 6min. 20 sec. total exposure from 19 frames. Tracked with a home-made EQ mount and Arduino driven motor.
Stacked in DSS. Turned out decent considering location and seeing (or lack of).
