This photo was taken August 20, 2005. At that time I had a Kodak EasyShare camera, 4.0 mega-pixels. So how did I get a detailed picture of the Moon? easy. I used a telescope that I had been given the previous Christmas. I just held (very steadily) the camera lens up to the eyepiece of the telescope, turned off the lcd screen, and took a number of photos until I got one I found jusssst right.
You don’t necessarily need a telephoto lens to mount on your camera as such, just an imagination and a steady hand. Try it sometime.
