    That's lookin' pretty nice. I always try to take photos of the moon, they *never* turn out that good. What kind of lens are you using, that looks like it's quite the close up. :D

    Well done!

    There is an adapter I could buy to use a telescope as my camera lens. But then I would have to buy the telescope too

    You can get a 500 or 1000mm mirror lens relatively cheap. They are usually fixed aperture, f5.6 or f8 but the moon is fairly bright and big enough to focus on. You don't notice the central obstruction for lunar shots. Good enough to play with.
