Another one of those "reach" shots. 560mm scope at 73x magnification at a distance of 900 feet. The truck is in the full scale shot but its so small the pic can hardly resolve it. About in the center of frame.
That's some reach there!

The nearest I could find was doing an image search:

Christos' post.
Maybe someone can translate some sense out of it.

Dunno now...he hasn't got it in his gear list and the bloke who posted it isn't around.

Hi
He is using a 6" Maksutov Telescope/1800mm fl and a Celestron Camera made for astrophotography.
Cool Pics!

Best

This one is a bit rough, taken through cloud on a 6" telescope, un-cropped image. 1250mm x 5.6 gives 7000mm

This is the telescope with a quickly temporary focuser:




This is the new DIY focuser with the Kx on it:



The original focuser was too tall (as it is on most cheap telescopes).

That is an interesting setup, very nice that it can let you get images such as the sample you posted.

From the Kx, I should be able to get about the same resolution from the Q.

This last one is very sharp ! If I can find a good deal on a Q-K genuine adapter... I'd try that on my big lens....
