Another look around the moon – 1

Alright! This time, we made some more progress. I still don’t have the alignment for the scope, however I was able to connect the camera using the T-Ring adapter and a little bit of adjustment on the focus and I had a gorgeous shot at the moon. Some things to consider would be ISO settings.

  1. Make sure you have your camera on manual mode if you are using a DSLR.
  2. ISO settings should be set to highest if you have a full frame camera, else, anything over 3200 should work.
  3. This doesn’t really need a long exposure shot, but I will leave that to your discretion.

I think the next plan is to continue to work on the alignment process. I will get in touch with Isaac from to see if I am doing anything wrong, but if my set up is all accurate, I will need to work with Isaac and see if Celestron will issue a new mount if something is wrong with my existing mount. Hoping for the best.

So, while we are waiting on the alignment, let us enjoy this master piece from William Blake.


Infant Joy – William Blake

‘I have no name;
I am but two days old.’
What shall I call thee?
‘I happy am,
Joy is my name.’
Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty joy!
Sweet joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,
I sing the while;
Sweet joy befall thee!
