I got my telescope in November 2003. Even though I'm fairly new to observing with a good scope, I've been looking up since I was a kid. All of these photos were taken with my Pentax ME Super 35mm camera (except where noted). Some were piggybacked on my scope (the scenic and constellation shots), and the others through it at prime focus except for the sliver moon. That was my first attempt at taking a photo thru my scope - I held the camera up to the 40mm eyepiece. At that point I hadn't purchased a t-mount.
