Moonpie

I also tried out a shot of the Moon. This is a prime focus shot with a Canon 70D + Orion XT6 as well. In order to get the camera to focus it required a 2x barlow piece attached to the end of the T-Adapter.

Due to the 2x barlow piece I wasn’t able to zoom out and capture the whole moon in the frame.

The moon has been low in the sky at this time in the year, and I was excited to try this, so I had to get out just before ‘full dark’ to capture this. It was just over the roof of my house and not quite dark yet, so I couldn’t get the focus and exposure figured too well. I’ll hopefully be getting better shots going forward.
